Xavatoria Hi-Speed Indexed Altavista-Like search engine
  • Updated: Feb, 2, 2000. Y2K bug fixed
  • By: Fluid Dynamics
  • Price: Freeware
  • You can see it in action here!
  • Download it from Here! (100k Unix Tar File can be read by Winzip)
  • Download as a ZIP File! (28K Zip File) If you unzip any tar file with Winzip- Be sure when you FTP any file NOT ending with jpg or gif to your UNIX Server- that you move them as ASCII and not as Binary. THIS IS ESSENTIAL and the largest source of installation failures!
  • For more information

This PERL search engine is similar to the Intermediate search, but rather than searching through your files real-time, it reads an index file that you create/update as needed. This method greatly cuts down on the amount of work the computer has to do while your readers wait for the result!

If your site has a lot of pages, this is the script for you.

Features

  • Easy to install, but read the instructions in the scripts carefully.
  • Full control over what files are indexed
  • Detailed user search instructions
  • Output like Altavista. Takes advantage of META tags.
In addition to the html files, the archive will create build.pl and search.pl

Before uploading to your cgi-bin directory, make certain that neither of these names are already used by other scripts!

I will be writing custom installation instructions when I get a chance. Frankly, the instructions at XAV are fantastic!

After moving this tar (tape archive) file to your cgi-bin directory, issue the command:

tar xvf xavatoria.tar
