RE: Abstracting

Yes, this is interesting ! There have been a discussion about abstracting in this mailing list, and someone said that it wasn't so slow to generate abstracts while generating the answer page of the query (at "run-time"). But it is a strng work to modify the Perl front script to generate abstracts. If the work is already done, it is better for me.
I agree with Ron, when he says that the abstracting should be independent of the retreiving method.
The fact is that I use the filesystem retreiving method (to index only a well known set of files), and it would be interesting for me to have that feature...

I've extended the swishspider to store in a DB the abstracts of pages.
I've used the DB_File package of perl that uses the dbm database (hash).
In this way I can return an abstract of a web page using a simple
perl script.
If someone is interested let me know...
