Abstract:

FreeWAIS-sf is an extension of the freeWAIS software provided by the the Clearinghouse for Networked Information Discovery and Retrieval (CNIDR). The SF suffix in the software name stands for "structured fields," an indexing and search feature which distinguishes this software from its predecessors.

It is based on the version 0.202 of this software but includes and enhances much of what freeWAIS-0.3 contains.

Major extensions of FreeWAIS-sf include:

All changes are restricted to the indexer and server to allow existing clients to query FreeWAIS-sf databases. Document types contained in the original distribution remain intact. You can use FreeWAIS-sf as you would use original freeWAIS or take advantage of its enhanced features.

Registered Beta testers can get the newest Version (freeWAIS-sf-1.2-pre.tgz). (down)

Please: Do not get freeWAIS-sf 1.1 from our ftp server.
