Web site indexing and searching application

Perlfect Search is a web site indexing and searching CGI application. Features include full-text and meta tag indexing, keyword weighting, relevance-ranked searches, dir/file excludes, stopwords, boolean searches, and an automatic installation and configuration utility that works with most web server setups. It includes an indexer, which automatically scans and indexes a web site, and a search engine, which is a cgi script that serves search queries for keywords over the index, and displays results pages in html, in a standard format including title, description and relevance ranking for each matching document. Advanced features include stopwords, a powerful exclude mechanism and a handy automatic installation and configuration utility. The 3.0 version includes very advanced search and indexing features and is essentially a complete rewrite.
