This PERL search engine is an enhancement to Matt's Simple Search.
The user enters keywords using Altavista's search syntax and
the program generates the results in a similar format. A friend of
mine, Chriss Hunt, made me aware of this script. From an
operational standpoint, the big difference between this script and
Selena Sol's which appears just above this. is you list the
files and directories you WANT to search.
After moving this tar
file to your cgi-bin directory, issue the command:
- Very Easy to install
- Tell the engine what files and/or directories
- BigNoseBird.Com enhanced data entry area
- Detailed user search instructions
- Output like Altavista. Takes advantage of META tags.
tar xvf intsearch.tar
It will create one new directory under cgi-bin: search1
As always- Read the README file! If you are using Matt's
Simple Search which usually is under /search- this will not
