I'll look at your URL in a moment, but as I really like your ideas
about stopwords, I need to know about the availability for the Win32
platform... One of the fixes that I read about for Win32 had to do
with a datatype that turned out to be a bug, but that would just be
ignored on Unix, although it would affect search results.

> Previosuly, using a stop-word in a query would always yield
> 0 results since the stop-word isn't in the index. After

> 3. You can now specify the number of lines to look into a file
> for HTML <TITLE> tags on the command line for "index"
> overriding the default.
> 4. Added default values to usage messages.
> BUG FIXES
