does anyone know is there any software to search file/keyword within a website?

for example if i search by "index.htm" within www.myweb.com, it shall give me results of which pages contain the keyword "index.htm" and is link to the page.

or if i search an image named "back.gif" within www.myweb.com, it shall give me results of which web pages contain the image.

heard from a friend, there is a software with this search feature but can't recall what's the software name.

anyone could help? thank you.

Well you might be going for a site search engine. The best I think is web wiz search site utility that is written in asp. All you have to do is to configure the asp script that contains the file extensions for the type of file you are searching for (Surely you can search for images).

This utility is also available with google and you can check it over there.

Use Google to search your site http://www.google.com/services/websearch.html 

just stick the following code on a web page in your site

<!-- SiteSearch Google -->
<FORM method=GET action="http://www.google.com/search">
<input type=hidden name=ie value=UTF-8>
<input type=hidden name=oe value=UTF-8>
<TABLE bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><tr><td>
<A HREF="http://www.google.com/">
<IMG SRC="http://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif"
border="0" ALT="Google"></A>
</td>
<td>
<INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=31 maxlength=255 value="">
<INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE="Google Search">
<font size=-1>
<input type=hidden name=domains value="YOUR DOMAIN NAME"><br><input type=radio name=sitesearch value=""> WWW <input type=radio name=sitesearch value="YOUR DOMAIN NAME" checked> YOUR DOMAIN NAME <br>
</font>
</td></tr></TABLE>
</FORM>
<!-- SiteSearch Google -->


search your site and the web with one of the best search engines around
http://www.google.com/searchcode.html

or if you need it to be more advanced still  customize it even more

If you need any help setting it up then just ask
