Re: Re: Swish-E New Feature?

Hi Roy
Given that swish has to do a complete search no matter how many
items are to be reported with the results, it does seem like a feature
that does not need to be inside the swish program itself.

The perl program (or whatever) just has to skip a certain number of
lines before dumping and the stop parsing lines when the output page 
has the desired number of lines.  These would be nice additions to
the standard swish perl cgi interface.  Where is that kept on the swish site?
I see that autoswish is no longer there, but I did not think that the
"vanilla" perl cgi script was part of that...
