I know that index files can be merged. That's no problem. But, can you
merge index files made on 3 distinct web servers into 1 index file
maintaining the links to the correct files.
For instance, on 3 servers (and therefore in 3 index files) I have the word
"automobile". I would like to be able to combine the index files from these
3 servers (call it mainindexfile) and have the URL's to the files
For example: The results for a search using mainindexfile (3 combined)
using keyword: "automobile" would produce, say 27 pages. The first 3
URL's in this example point to pages on 3 servers:

I use swish-e too and I know that you can merge the 3 swish files into a
check the documentation to find how to merge index files.
