      Swish-e is Simple Web Indexing System for Humans - Enhanced. Swish-e
      can quickly and easily index directories of files or remote web sites
      and search the generated indexes.

      Swish-e is extremely fast in both indexing and searching, highly
      configurable, and can be seamlessly integrated with existing web sites
      to maintain a consistent design. Swish-e can index web pages, but can
      just as easily index text files, mailing list archives, or data stored
      in a relational database.

      Swish is designed to index small to medium sized collection of
      documents, Although a few users are indexing over a million documents,
      typical usage is more often in the tens of thousands. Currently,
      Swish-e only indexes eight bit character encodings.

      Documentation is provided as HTML pages installed in
      $prefix/share/doc/swish-e where $prefix is /usr/local if building from
      source, or /usr if installed as part of a package from your OS vendor.
      Under Windows $prefix is selected at installation time.

      Documentation is also available on-line at

      A subset of the documentation is installed as system man pages as
      well.  The following man pages should be installed:
