Hi Everybody!

I am building a search engine ( if you are curious)
and am wondering if anybody knows how many documents can I expect to be able
to support. Specifically, how big can the database grow if I am using the
swish.cgi script to search on the database and still expect reasonably quick

Subject: [SWISH-E] A new site that use swish-e

Hi all,

I send this e-mail to inform all of you that there is a new site tha use
swish-e in production.
It's the italian web page of "Gifts, Exchanges and Back Issues for
The link is

The site is in italian so I  have translated the interface.
I rank results only by date.
I had a key to insert or not a pair of ' to the query string.
To handle the query I have add that code to swish.cgi:

my $check ='';
$check = $q ->param('check_frase');
if ($check eq 'frase'){
      $query =~ s/"//g;
      $query = '"'.$query.'"';

Thanks to all for your help (ex. Bill Moseley).
