Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

Namazu

Anyone tried Namazu ? I used it when I needed to "crunch"
5 MB documentation, mixed PDF, HTML and Word .doc, in a very short time. What I liked the most was an ability to execute a simple, Google-like query from the command line, and results were displayed in a preferred browser, just like Yahoo or Google.

One can have different index sets with Namazu, too.

I have not tried any of reviewed programs, so I can't compare them to Namazu. Namazu can be usefull as a search engine for single website, because it can run as CGI, too.
