hi everyone:

i would like to know if anyone knows how to add searching capabilities to my site. i don't mean to have my site indexed by a search engine or anything like that, what i want is to provide people with the posibility of entering a word or set of words and have a page that will display a list of my pages that contain that word. it is kind of an internal site search engine.

in the past i used the free services of hitbox.com and i had my site indexed by them everytime that i made any changes but i think that they don't offer that for free anymore.

does anyone knows of other site that migh offer the same kind of service or the algorithm that i can use or add to my site to get this done. fyi, part of the site is hosted on a jakarta-tomcat server and the rest is hosted in an Apache server.
some code will help lots.

thanks,

rene

Your boss will probably spend more paying you by the hour to figure this out than the price of the software, but hey, nothing beats a little job security :)  Good Luck.

It's free - doesn't cost a cent, and there's no time limit. It's called the express account.
