Search Tools Product Report

Subject Search Server (SSServer) from Kryloff Technologies

Product Information

Platform:Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, 2003; Linux, FreeBSD
Price: Free with link to Kryloff site; Software Development Kit, aka code library, $795



Subject Search Server indexes local files only, handles many languages and character sets. It has a technical and ambitious interface, offering control over the length and number of extracts to display, as well as defaulting to fuzzy search -- matching parts of the query terms rather than the more standard exact match -- which can be changed in the search form. Although it's free (with a link to the Kryloff site) on Windows, Linux and FreeBSD, it lacks a robot spider for indexing via HTTP, has less-than-user-friendly search form and results pages, and has no admin interface, using configuration files.
