If I've long offered a license for my software--- a very fast and powerfull fielded (even allows for one to search for words in the same line, sentence or paragraph) fulltext S/R engine--- for this purpose but did not find much interest--- it runs under Solaris/SPARC, Linux(32-bit) and shall shortly be released for freeBSD 64-bit AMD--- and even some (misplaced) concern about content rights. I had a service running for a short while on one of my machines but I did not notice anyone (other than myself) really using it. If there is real interest this time I can relaunch a service. > someone has the talent to turn the text into a database, I¹m happy to share > my back-up copy in exchange. -- Edward C.
