BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- dtSearch Corp., a leading supplier of enterprise, end-user and developer text retrieval software, announces Version 6.4 of its dtSearch product line. dtSearch products instantly search gigabytes (and more) of text across a desktop, network, Internet or Intranet. dtSearch products also serve as tools to aid in publishing large document collections to Web sites or to CD/DVD, with instant text searching. Products include: -- dtSearch Desktop with Spider, for instantly searching all popular file types on a PC -- dtSearch Network with Spider, for instantly searching across a network -- dtSearch Web with Spider, for quickly publishing a large volume of instantly searchable content to a Web site -- dtSearch Publish, for quickly publishing an instantly searchable document collection to CD or DVD, or mirroring an existing Web site on CD or DVD -- dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine, for Win & .NET and for Linux, for developers to add dtSearch's built-in file format support and searching to Web-based and other applications All dtSearch products share the same core search and display functionality, including: -- over two dozen indexed, unindexed, full-text and fielded data search options -- display of HTML, XML and PDF files with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links and formatting intact -- proprietary HTML converters for display of word processor, database, spreadsheet, email, ZIP, Unicode, etc. files, with highlighted hits The built-in dtSearch Spider allows Web developers and desktop/network users to add Web site content to a locally searchable database. The Spider can search Web site content to any specified level of page depth, and supports ordinary public sites, secure content (HTTPS) sites, password-accessible sites, and dynamic-content ASP and ASP.NET sites. The Spider includes integrated relevancy ranking with local searches, including WYSIWYG display with highlighted hits of HTML, PDF and XML Web-based files. In addition to "vertical" searching of pages linked from a URL, the Spider can now "horizontally" crawl all sites linked to a URL. (In keeping with the broader reach of the dtSearch Spider, the new version also adds options to limit indexed data by file size, file number, time on a Web site, etc.) The Spider also now supports forms-based authentication. Along with the Spider enhancements, dtSearch Web adds new options to the set-up wizard's search form generation, such as easy date range control, automatic generation of field searching controls, and stylesheet-based search form and search results formatting. dtSearch Publish uses a version of dtSearch Web on its CD/DVDs, along with a mini HTTP server. The result is instantly searchable CD/DVDs that run with zero footprint. Because dtSearch Publish also uses dtSearch Web, the search form enhancements also apply to CD/DVD generation. The dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine, available in both Win & .NET and Linux versions, currently supports SQL, Delphi, Java, C++, C++.NET, C#, VB.NET and ASP.NET. The new version adds a new native .NET sample application for indexing and searching any database accessible via ADO.NET. The new version also includes Java API enhancements. In addition, the entire dtSearch product line now adds a positional scoring option to dtSearch's built-in relevancy ranking by hit term frequency, density and rarity. The new positional scoring ranks documents more highly when hits are near the top of a file, or otherwise clustered in a file. The scoring option works in connection with all existing indexed, unindexed, fielded and full-text search features, including: fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus, boolean (and/or/not), natural language, phrase, phonic, wildcard, proximity, stemming, numeric range, and user-defined variable term weighting. Pricing is $199 for dtSearch Desktop with Spider, from $800 for dtSearch Network with Spider, from $999 for dtSearch Web with Spider, and from $2,500 for dtSearch Publish. dtSearch offers a variety of royalty-based and royalty- free pricing options for the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for Win & .NET and Linux.
