Boolean Search is a Mac OS X server application for searching the contents of plain text, rich text, HTML formatted text, MS Word, PDF and any other textual file format supported by Spotlight. It can be employed as a search engine for a public web site on the Internet, or a personal or group owned collection of files on your own computer or LAN. A wide variety of search criteria and customizable response pages makes Boolean Search a very flexible alternative to Internet search engines or operating system services like Spotlight.
* Search forms and results are highly customizable with the use of "templates," standard HTML and AppleScript.
* Generation of a "site index" which lists all the words contained in a file collection, and links to the files which contain them.
* Various query-based search methods are available: exact, partial, approximate, case sensitive, proximity, phrase, regular expression pattern matching, etc.
* A wide variety of "context summaries" of found documents are available, and files are viewable with search terms linked and highlighted.
* Spell-checking of queries and generation of new queries for the corrected terms (as in "Did you mean?)
* Much more!
Blue Crab is a versatile program that you use to copy the contents of a web site to your computer, in whole or in part.
* Conduct fast offline browsing and searching without an internet connection.
* Create a snapshot of a web site for historical archiving.
* Collect specific types of resources such as images or email addresses.
* Search current content more thoroughly than a search engine right on your own computer.
* Check a site for broken links, or generate an HTML site map
* Perform batch downloads of URL's
* Create full page images of URL's (JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, PSD, etc.)
* Much more!
But these products work together! You can use Blue Crab to download web sites and then index and search them with Boolean Search. For example you can use the Site Index of Boolean Search to view an index of the downloaded files which links words directly to the files that contain them.
