For those uninitiated ones, could you tell me which Perl modules are you using to do the search and indexing of data? Whenever I had to do tackle similar search issues, I simply resorted to the use of the DBIx::FullTextSearch module. It's a pretty versatile module and my thinking is it could be used even to implement PM search. This is only a suggestion, however. And also I'm aware that for 2 cents to be worth a dime, I'll have to show some sample code of how this module could be 'incorporated' into the PM engine. ;-)

    The only modules are DBI, CGI, and Everything. Most of the actual code is included below.

    This is a pretty specialized situation. For example, we can't allow any single query to run very long since MySQL was designed assuming some aspects of the threading model (light-weight processes) that aren't present on FreeBSD. So a single long-running query can nearly lock up access to the database for everyone.
