To have search capabilities in place, you can use Ht://Dig <

> to name just a few free applications. These can be difficult to install
to an amateur, so be warned. If you Web sites is or has been thouroughly
crawled by major search engines, you can use these for site search, which
is also easier to implement -- or shall I say -- to incorporate.

Look, for example, at the source of the following page <

them to suit your purpose.

You needn't program anything. Many search facilities have been implemented
already. You just need to 'plug some in' using the interfaces or using some
known API's.

Hope it helps,
