Re: Building a search engine!!!!

I believe that the EWS engine only indexes the local server; I don't think
it includes a spider.  I believe it also only can communicate with a server
via CGI, rather than any of the higher-speed interfaces (NSAPI, ISAPI)  I
invite you to look at Verity's SEARCH'97 Information Server, which addresses
these issues.  A basic version of the Verity engine is included with
Netscape servers.  See

I would also suggest that anyone with search-specific questions join the
search mailing list --  To join, send "subscribe" in
the body of a message to
