Quoted from http://www.vestris.com/alkaline/intro.html:

 : Search Scripts written generally in Perl or C searching sites of a
 : maximum a few thousand pages. They do not include complex algorithms to
 : optimize searching and indexing and become unusable as the site grows
 : over about 5000 pages. Those scripts are still good when it comes to a
 : home-made site where there's no much search power needed and where a
 : search box is quite a gadget.
 : Technically, those scripts reindex modified pages once in a while (like
 : once a day) in a few minutes or seconds and produce usually fixed output
 : with little layout options as search results. As those scripts are
 : entirely CGIs, they are slower as they never maintain persistent data in
 : memory but store it and load or parse it each time the search engine is
 : invoked.
 : Among such scripts you can find WebGlimpse or ht://Dig.

Perhabs, someone should set things right. :-)

Otoh, there's this server aliases/virtual hosts issue I mention from
time to time ... :-)
