New version of the IRIS DMC web search engine

A new version of the web search engine has been developed. Among
the changes are the following:

  • Cleaner text filtering by the web crawler.
  • Up to 500 matches are listed on navigable pages of 50 each.
  • Matching words are highlighted in the displayed output, along with matching word counts.
  • Results are cached to temp file for quick repeat access and navigation.
  • Multiprocessing lessens wait time to viewing initial search results even as further results are processed.

For more about our in-house search engine, read this related article from a previous DMS Electronic Newsletter.
