hello

i use the perl-script <search_plus.pl> from Matt Wright on a <winnt 4.0
server> and it works so far...
my problem:
this script search any word, only in the root dicrectory but not in the
subdirectory.
although i can put an parameter called @files:
@files = ("*.htm", "*/*.htm", "*/*/*.htm");
to search in the deeper directory.

any suggestion? thanks a lot - hanspeter

use something else, like swish or glimpse or many of the other
things you can find.

Matt Wright's search script is just inane.

I'm not sure exactly what your "problem" is.

The point of that array in the script is so that you can set which
directories it searches and which it doesn't. If you want it to search
subdirectories you can just put them on that list -- so what's the
problem?

Are you saying you have:

* very many subdirectories?
* subdirectories which change without notice?
* some other problem?

if you have a big site then this isn't the right script for you anyway.
