Previously, the dtSearch index format could hold from 4-8 gigabytes of

Product line overview. All dtSearch products share the same core search
and display functionality, including:
-- over two dozen indexed, unindexed, full-text and fielded data search
-- display of HTML, XML and PDF files with highlighted hits and with
embedded images, links and formatting intact
-- built-in HTML converters for display of word processor, database,
spreadsheet, email (including attachments), ZIP, Unicode, etc. files,
with highlighted hits.
The dtSearch Spider embedded in multiple dtSearch products provides
integrated searching of remote Web site content, along with locally-available
data. In addition to support for the file formats above, the dtSearch Spider
can also index and search dynamically-generated content, such as ASP/ASP.NET,
MS CMS, MS Sharepoinet, etc.
The Spider can follow links vertically within a web site, or horizontally
across web sites, to any specified level of depth. The Spider supports public
sites, secure content HTTPS sites, password-accessible sites and forms-based
authentication. After a search, dtSearch provides integrated relevancy-
ranking and other display of local and Spidered content, including WYSWYG
display of Web-ready content with highlighted hits.
dtSearch Web quickly publishes a large volume of instantly searchable data
to an Internet or Intranet site, with Spider functionality. The dtSearch
Engine lets developers add dtSearch's built-in file format support and
searching to Web-based and other applications. The dtSearch Engine API
support includes SQL, Delphi, Java, C++, C++.NET, C#, VB.NET and ASP.NET.
dtSearch Desktop instantly searches popular file types on a PC, while
dtSearch Network searches across a network, running in a client/server
capacity. dtSearch Publish can quickly publish an instantly searchable
document collection to CD, DVD or similar media. The product can also mirror
an existing Web site on CD/DVD. The resulting CD/DVD application can run
without installing anything on the user's hard disk.
The dtSearch product line offers over two dozen indexed, unindexed,
fielded and full-text search options. These include: fuzziness adjustable
from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and spelling errors),
synonym/concept/thesaurus, boolean (and/or/not), natural language relevancy
ranking (by hit term frequency, density and rarity), positional scoring
ranking, phrase, phonic, wildcard, bilateral proximity, directed proximity,
stemming, numeric range, user-defined variable term weighting, and
international language support through Unicode.
Special forensically-oriented features include: (i) automatic parsing of
text segments in large data blocks, such as those recovered through an
"undelete" process, from unallocated computer space, or from partially
recovered file fragments; (ii) language recognition algorithms for detecting
text in a large variety of languages (Western European, other European,
Middle-Eastern, etc.); (iii) a proprietary filtering algorithm for scanning
recovered data blocks using multiple text encoding detection methods; and (iv)
automatic recovery of text from corrupt forensically-retrieved documents.
