YASE is a text indexing and retrieval system (search engine). It is designed to process large collections easily. All words are indexed and can be optionally stemmed. The query tool supports searching all/any terms and can rank query results by relevance using the cosine measure. YASE can be customised to read various types of documents by providing a suitable filter to extract text from the document. It can also scan existing directory structures or Web sites for documents. A single database can refer to files in multiple directories or Web site. Last, the program is easy to use because there are only two commands: one to build a database, and the other to query it.
