Glimpse Webglimpse    
Webglimpse requires Glimpse. Separate use of Glimpse requires a license. If you are installing Webglimpse via ssh, you will need to install Glimpse first. (The FTP and cPanel installers automatically retrieve and install the appropriate Glimpse binary). The most recent release is always available in source form as
glimpse-latest.tar.gz

Additional Notes

Licensed version includes additional modules for customizing results output, accepting easier input syntax (AND/OR/NOT), ranking hits according to admin-defined formula, caching search results, and logging searches in a format compatible with wusage. See Features for a full list, and Licensing Info for more about license requirements. Or you can just skip to Purchase ;-)

Glimpse 4.17.1 has been reported to compile and run under Windows using the latest Cygwin compiler, but is not recommended for casual Windows users at this time. Would be very interested to hear of anyone's results using Glimpse on Windows!

NOTE: Some browsers may erroneously drop the .gz extension when downloading .tar.gz files. Make sure you name your download with .tar.gz and unpack it appropriately

3rd-party packages

For RedHat 7.0 users: the /bin/sort that ships with RedHat 7.0 appears to be broken. To get glimpse to work in RH 7.0, you will need to get GNU textutils v1.22 and rebuild sort from the source code.
Download GNU textutils v1.22

For indexing Word and Excel files, grab the catdoc program by Vitus Wagner and see Indexing Word and Excel Documents for instructions on its use.
Download: catdoc

To index PDF documents, get pdftotext from http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/ and see Indexing PDF documents with Xpdf

User-contributed packages

usexpdf.sh shell script for use with pdftotext, contributed by Tong Sun. Note, the link ends with .txt so that your system will not accidentally try to execute the file; but you should save it as usexpdf.sh for use. See documentation for details on its use.
