Interrogate Search Agent
The Interrogate search agent integrates with web browsers, to provide a simple user interface for searching files - either within web sites, or on disk or CD-ROM. It operates entirely on the local computer, removing any necessity for server-side scripting when searching pages on the World Wide Web.
Depending upon the context in which the search agent will be used, it is possible to set the default state for case sensitivity and prioritised searches.
The Interrogate search window is dynamically resizeable, allowing users to alter the height and width of the results list, as required.
All files relating to the program (except the 2 Java class files) are tidily stored in a single directory, presenting the minimum obstruction to users loading files from disk.
Interrogate is able to search any page which contains standard ASCII text. By providing users with plug-ins or updated browsers, it becomes just as easy to browse and search document formats other than HTML and text files.
Interrogate can integrate with frames within HTML pages, allowing for attractive and consistent incorporation within a frames-based environment.
A simple text file containing a list of filenames specifies the pages to be searched by the Interrogate search agent. By omitting irrelevant pages, or those of little use, searches can be conducted as swiftly as possible. Filenames are specified using relative paths, with respect to the location of the applet source code. Complete sites or collections of pages can thus be easily transported onto or between web servers, or between drives or directories on the local machine.
