Last year when we were discussing ideal query languages and search engines,
I had my eye on DOS applications, not UNIX. Things have changed: we now have
a MIPS (RISC) machine and an HP 9000/840s running modified System V UNIX with
BSD extensions. So now I need to ask again: does anyone have a good
recommendation for a full-text retrieval engine that will run under System V
UNIX? PD software with source code would be best, but I'll take any
suggestions I can get. The BRS implementation looks good, but it's
expensive. Thanks for your help.
