mnoGoSearch is a full-featured SQL based web search engine. mnoGoSearch consists of two parts. The first part is an indexing mechanism (indexer). The indexer walks over html hypertext references and stores found words and new references into a database. The second part is a web CGI front-end to provide search using data collected by the indexer. A PHP and a Perl front-ends are also available from our site http://www.mnogosearch.org/.
mnoGoSearch first release took place in November 1998. The search engine was named UDMSearch until the project was acquired by Lavtech.Com Corp. in October 2000 and its name changed to mnoGoSearch.
