WWW Search Engine Software for OpenVMS

ht://Dig Copyright © 1995-2002 The ht://Dig Group

The ht://Dig system is a complete world wide web indexing and searching system for a small domain or intranet. This system is not meant to replace the need for powerful internet-wide search systems like Lycos, Infoseek, Webcrawler and AltaVista. Instead it is meant to cover the search needs for a single company, campus, or even a particular sub section of a web site.
As opposed to some WAIS or web server based search engines, ht://Dig can span several web servers at a site. The type of these different web servers doesn't matter as long as they understand the HTTP 1.0 protocol.

This is my port of ht://Dig version 3.1.6 to OpenVMS. It should compile okay on VAXen, but unfortunately I don't have the environment to build it. So for now binaries are available only for Alpha and Integrity. Sorry. If you need something for OpenVMS/VAX, perhaps SWISH- E (binaries for OpenVMS are available on the WASD homepage) is the right thing for you.


To build from source, you'll need at least Compaq/HP C 6.x, Compaq/HP C++ 6.x, and MMS 3.3 or MMK 3.9.


The current version is 3.1.6 Release 2:
