Fluid Dynamics Search Engine script description:

Publisher review:
Fluid Dynamics Search Engine is an easy-to-install search engine for local and remote sites. FDSE is a search engine that you install on your own site. Visitors to your site use it to find files on your site or on a small cluster of sites. The search box at the top of this page is an example of how FDSE is typically used.

FDSE is different than Google or Altavista, which search the entire Internet. FDSE only searches the sites that you tell it to. It can handle about 10,000 documents in all, which is plenty for one site but much fewer than the total number of documents on the Internet. (more info on size limits)

FDSE is smaller than Google or Altavista, but it is qualitatively identical to them. It has its own built-in web robot for retreiving files, which means it is not limited to searching only documents on its own server. It builds its own index files and returns results from them, unlike some "meta-search" scripts which make behind-the-scenes requests to major search engines to gather results.

FDSE runs entirely on your server, so visitors aren't redirected to a separate centralized server to get their results (as with Atomz and Freefind). If your web server doesn't support Perl CGI at all, then you might be better off with one of those remotely-hosted solutions.

FDSE is a flat search engine - it accepts keywords and shows a ranked list of search results. It does not organize pages into browsable categories and subcategories like Yahoo does.

Main Features:
- Code executes 100% locally on your own server - no dependencies on other sites or companies.
- Code is 100% pure Perl - no dependencies on external modules or system calls.
- No forced banner advertisements to distract your visitors.
- Extras are optional. For example, you can configure your own keyword-triggered banner ads, but that's your choice. They aren't forced on you.
- Platform indepedence - runs well on Unix, Linux, Windows NT, Windows 200X, Win95/98/ME.
- Completely template-based: you control the entire look-and-feel of the site by editing text/html template files. No need to edit the source code... though you can do that too. You can always preserve your existing templates and data when upgrading or re-installing the product.
- Dependable user support, featuring many in-depth help files and an active discussion forum.
- Code is modular and heavily commented for the benefit of those who want to be hardcore. Can be called as an API from another Perl script. Format of all data files is documented in the help file.
- Highly customizable filter rules allow you to programmatically control which web pages are included in the index. Filtering can be done based on patterns in the hostname, URL, or Document Text, or based on RASCi and Safesurf PICS headers.
- Resource-intensive actions, like indexing entire web sites, are spread across multiple CGI executions, using META refreshes. This prevents web server timeouts due to excessive resource usage, and allows the action to recover if some individual CGI executions fail.
- Searches text and HTML files. Can also search PDF, MP3, and MS Word files with helper applications (help file).
- Add Your URL - any visitor can add her own website to the index, at your option. This can be turned on or off by the script owner. (more info)
- Attribute Indexing - a document's text, keywords, description, title, and address are all extracted and used for searching.
- Rich Display - the title, description, size, last modified time, and address of each document are shown to the user in the list of hits. The admin can configure the number of hits to show per page.
- Relevance Listing - documents are sorted by the number of keyword hits, so that the most relevant document appears first. Search terms found in the title, keywords, or description are given additional weight.
- Smart HTML Parsing - the search engine does not index text appearing inside of HTML tags, nor inside or blocks
- Attribute Searching - by default, searches find words in the body, title, keywords, URL, links, or text of a document.
