Subject: [SWISH-E] Swish-E and HTML documents with frames

I have been testing a new version of the Swish-E spider that can handle
HTML documents with frames.

If the spider program detects that the document is a framed HTML, it
recursively builds content by reading through the <frame src> pointers, and
builds up a list of all the <a href> links that it finds. It then passes
*this* back to the C program, which indexes the document as if it were one
big HTML. The spidering will work as if all the <a href> links found in in
the frameset HTML files were at level 1.

Would this be of use to anyone?
