You need to install the SWISH::Stemmer perl module.  It's in the
"example" directory of the distribution.

>From perldoc swish.cgi:

       If you want to use a stemmed index with this program and continue to high-
       light search terms you will need to install a perl module that will stem
       words.  This section explains how to do this.

       The perl module is included with the swish-e distribution.  It can be
       found in the examples directory (where you found this file) and called
       something like:


       The module should also be available on CPAN (

       Here's an example session for installing the module.  (There will be quite
       a bit of output when running make.)

           % gzip -dc SWISH-Stemmer-0.05.tar.gz |tar xof -
           % cd SWISH-Stemmer-0.05
           % perl Makefile.PL
           % perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=$HOME/perl_lib
           % make
           % make test

           (perhaps su root at this point if you did not use a PREFIX)
           % make install
           % cd ..
