Using Web Servers' Built-In Search Tools

Another alternative to implementing your own search engine is to use search services already built in to your Web server. Several Web servers for UNIX and Windows NT include built-in utilities to index and search the files at a site. Some of these tools have fewer capabilities than the search engines previously mentioned.

Searching with OraCom WebSite Server

O'Reilly's WebSite server for Windows NT includes the company's WebIndex indexing and WebFind searching tools. WebIndex can index the full text of every page in the server's directory structure or only selected parts of the directories. WebFind runs as a CGI program and is a conventional search tool. It does keyword searches and supports AND and OR operators.
