What is a "Search engine"?

Have you ever used Internet searching systems? Were you surprised at the speed with which these systems "scanned" the Internet finding files containing search-parameter words you entered?

"Why does my PC take longer to search a single hard disk than does Infoseek to search the whole Internet?".

Of course, Yahoo or Infoseek have very powerful computers.

But now, with Anet's Search32, you can extend the search power of your computer. Even a 386, running Windows 95 can compete with the speediest text retrieval systems!

Normally, using Find File from the standard Windows 95 package, your computer conscientiously rotates its hard disk and checks all the files word by word, what a long, time-consuming procedure.

Search32 text retrieval system provides you a special "search engine". Developed on Anet's unique algorithm, this engine, like those used by Yahoo and Infoseek, does not scan the whole disk. Instead, it browses preprepared "index files". These index files contain information about every word in every text file. Result? Superfast search results showing text strings and file names! Files easy to identify and open one by one.

Search32 from Anet.

There are several companies developing their own search engines. All of them provide comprehensive searches and some degree of speed. They all search preprepaired index files. However, several features make Anet's Search32 the outstanding text retrieval tool for you:

Our Motivation

We are often asked,
"Why is Search32 so cheap? You can't regain the money you invested in development from selling each copy for only $20".

Well, the new version of Search 32 costs $39, but it is still the least expensive avaialable.

We are not staking our corporate future on a text retrieval utility. Anet is developing more complicated, and more expensive, programs. Sometimes we extract a kernel from one of them and arrange it as a stand-alone product for wide distribution.

We like Search32. It is constantly improved and we provide technical support for our customers who buy it.

However, when you use Search32 please remember that there are a number of features not included in the current version which may be part of the future, or available in one of our other programs. Perhaps the features you most desire are already implemented in another Anet program.

A morphology support is added into Russian version of Search32. Now it is possible to find exact Russian words and their forms as well. For instance you can ask for "chield" and find "chield" and "children" or "go" - "went".

If your needs are unusual or extensive, have Anet customize programs especially for you .
