Active Detective provides highest indexing speed and unique feature of automatic index update "on the fly". It watches for file system and recreates index immediately as file system is changed within a time comparable to a file saving time. No need to worry of updating index if new files appear in preindexed directories.
Remote clients should use browsers to search on Active Detective. Active Detective generates HTML file with a search form for loading it into browser on remote client side. Remote client may have different access rights to their own indexes stored on the server side.
Administrator can use Active Detective user interface, which is light, flexible and convenient.
It allows to view the found text in built-in viewer or double-click to run an associated program (Notepad, Word, WordPerfect, default browser, etc.).
Web-Masters will like an ability to do full text search among HTML files and view them both in HTML mode and source code mode.
Internet customers can benefit from Cache Watcher mode. It keeps track of default browser cache and helps user to recall visited pages. Found pages can be shown in built-in HTML viewer or loaded into the browser.
Language Maker utility allows to assign symbols to be included into index and to be searched for with Active Detective.
Active Detective is loaded in the Windows 95 tray and watches for the file system in order to do an automatic, on-the-fly and instant index updating - completely transparent for the user.
Indexing is fast. A test on a 486 DX4-100 with 16 Mb RAM took only 6 minutes to index 100 Mb of .DOC files.
