I have a 100 pages and I would like to build a search engine that will be able to search within their content.
How can I do it?
yeah u can do dat u need to index your pages.
i have posted a similar post earlier and it has replies on it i am sure you can take help from there ..............
you just need to have a look at how the windows indexing service works. try http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/ for some details.
Another thing you can do is use the file system object to crawl the files and do searches on the fly. This takes a LOT of CPU tho.
