Thanks for taking the time for the comprehensive reply.
It is appreciated.
I think I'm getting somewhere, and maybe it isn't so complicated.
I simply use the following
MetaNames swishtitle swishdocpath
StoreDescription HTML* <body> 200000
> swish-e -S fs -c howto-all.conf
title => 'FAST : Search the FAST list',
swish_index => 'howto-all.index'
and the swish.cgi finds strings with html, doc, xls, and ppt files
Ok , a few problems ,
- the results just give filename and not the context where the string was fouund
- searching of xls is a bit flakey
but I can check out the detailed documentation to see what these problems are.
I think the problem for new users is the lack of a "hello world" example.
When you first read K&R it says
- type the following few lines into a file called helloworld.c
- type cc helloworld.c
- type a.out
that works , and you're up and running and you can start thinking about I/O, arrays, pointers, mallocs and the rest
Here , you're trying to get your head around all kinds of abstract ideas before you see any results. Also , following Josh's excellent , but perhaps now depricated 'How to Index Anything' sends you off down a blind alley.
