dtSearch Corp., a supplier of enterprise and developer text retrieval software, has announced Version 7.2 of its product line for searching terabytes of documents across a desktop, network, Internet, or Intranet.
The new version adds a .NET Spider API for the dtSearch Engine for Win & .NET, and updates the dtSearch Engine for Linux to the "terabyte indexer" code base. The new release also adds OpenOffice to the list of supported file types. All dtSearch products can index over a terabyte of text in a single index (as well as create and simultaneously search an unlimited number of indexes). Indexed search time is typically less than a second even across terabytes of data. Along with the "terabyte indexer," all dtSearch products generally share the same feature set: over two dozen indexed, unindexed, full-text, and fielded data search options; display of HTML, XML, and PDF files with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links, and formatting intact; built-in HTML converters for browser display of non-Web-ready content (word processor, database, spreadsheet, presentation, ZIP, CSV, Unicode, and other file types) with highlighted hits; and XML-based distributed searching, including integrated display of local and remote content.
dtSearch Desktop with Spider searches files on a PC (or on PC-accessible network drives). dtSearch Network with Spider searches across a network running in a client/server capacity. Both search and display with highlighted hits content, including: email messages (Outlook, Outlook Express, Exchange, Eudora and other .MSG formats) along with the full text of email attachments, MS Office, and now OpenOffice files, PDF, XML, HTML, ZIP, CSV, Unicode, and other content. Through the dtSearch Spider, both applications can also add Web-based content to a local or network search. dtSearch Web with Spider publishes a large volume of instantly searchable data to an Internet or Intranet site. dtSearch Publish offers publishing of a searchable document collection to CD, DVD, portable harddrive, and the like. The product can also mirror an existing Web site on CD/DVD. Both applications now add OpenOffice to the list of file types that the applications can publish (to the Web or to CD/DVD), instantly search, and display with highlighted hits.
The dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine lets developers add dtSearch search functionality to Web-based and other applications. The dtSearch Engine also provides developers access to dtSearch's file format support, including dtSearch's WYSIWYG hit-highlighted search display of Web-ready files, and proprietary built-in HTML converters for non-Web-ready files such as MS Office documents. Pricing is $199 for dtSearch Desktop with Spider, from $800 for dtSearch Network with Spider, from $999 for dtSearch Web with Spider, and from $2,500 for dtSearch Publish.
