Snatcher is a simple full-text search engine for Japanese or English text. It features full-text retrieval of a Web site by the use of only one command. Snatcher can be extended by using preprocessor programs. It can deal not only with plain text, but also with HTML, XML, man, PDF and so on. Snatcher features not only keyword search with a boolean information retrieval model, but also relational document search with a vector space model. Snatcher was designed for Japanese, and documents and log messages are only in Japanese. But it can process both English and Japanese documents.
