Could you make perldoc:// link to a Google advanced search with instead?

    Are you interested in getting help with search engine?

    I would gladly contribute perl code to index and search perldrunks using swish-e. I could even host search engine on my site if installation of swish-e on perldrunks is problem.

      Thanks for the offer sbout swish-e, but the search engine actually needs to be written in JavaScript. One of the design considerations for is that all features need to work from a CD-ROM as well as a web server (see, so I can't use anything that needs to be run server-side.
        Something like jsFind?

        Darn :-) I just made demo what I had in mind with swish-e. (30 min hack, please be kind).
