Ht: Dig

From Free Software Directory
Jump to: navigation, search


Internet search engine software

The ht://Dig system is a complete World Wide Web indexing and searching system for a domain or intranet. The system is not meant to replace Internet-wide search engines such as Alta Vista, but instead to cover the search needs for a single company, campus, or even a particular subsection of a large Web site. ht://Dig can easily span several Web servers; the type of server doesn't matter as long as it covers common protocols like HTTP. Many different types of searches can be set up using a common database. Additional features include support for robot exclusion, Boolean expression and fuzzy configurable search results, ability to search both text and HTML files, searches on subsections of the database, the ability to index a protected server, limit the depth of the search, and add keywords to HTML documents.
