The Simple Web Indexing System for Humans-Enhanced is a system for indexing collections of Web pages or other text files. It supports the AND, OR, and NOT operators, words can be truncated using *, and searches can be limited to particular fields or to certain HTML tags. Index files consist of only one file, so they are portable and can be easily maintained. In indexing HTML files, SWISH-E can ignore data in most tags while giving higher relevance to information in header and title tags. Titles are extracted from HTML files and appear in the search results. SWISH can automatically search your whole Web site for you in one pass, if it's under one directory. You can also limit your search to words in HTML titles, comments, emphasized tags, and META tags. In addition, 8-bit HTML characters can be indexed, converted, and searched.
