basic search engine

jatill has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm looking for a perl module that will do some basic search functionality. I want to add all of my text strings to an index, and then query the index for the best results. Search::VectorSpace actually does exactly what I need, but I'm having a lot of issues getting PDL to work. Lucy::Simple looks like it might work, but doesn't seem to have scoring. I thought there would be a million search modules on CPAN, but I'm having trouble finding something lightweight and simple to use. Have any recommendations? Thanks.

    I've not done anything like this, but would Search::Tools be similar to what you are looking for?

    but doesn't seem to have scoring.

    What is that?

    If Lucy::Simple is too simple, it is built on top of Lucy, and Lucy is full featured :)
