Perl is the best language for searching text files.  If you run into performance problems you have to options,

1) Get a real DB and use perl to query it.
2) Use C

Perl cant be beat when dealing with text. It is very easy and you can do a lot with little programming.
1 paragraph in perl often equates to 3 or more pages in C

check out www.cpan.com for all you need to use perl.

BTW: it is free! and there are many scripts available on the web for free, too. <gr>

Good Luck

That is another question, but as with any language the cgi is writtin in you must designate the file as an executable file in IIS.
then print to stdn out remember to print out this line before anything else
"Content-type: text/html\n\n"
thats it.
