Hi everyone,

I'm doing a new deployment of a search engine for a small intranet. I've
got some questions :

(i) It is 'suggested' that my database would contain files made up of
text records ie each line would be 1 record with several fields.
HOwever, most search engines claim they can search text and index it.
BUT can they return that SPECIFIC record/line instead of the entire
text/file. Can Dig do this or can any search engine do this?

I wanted to put it into a small DB like mSQL or my SQL etc but the
'CUSTOMER' didn't want that..:( I suspose most search engines are
intelligent enough to return the record for a DBM file right??

(ii) Has anyone compiled this under linux RHL 5.1 and above?? It should
work right?

I'm quite new to this so any help will be greatly appreciated.
