Search at www.gluefox.com In English


The two choices given above ("Search at www.gluefox.com" and "In English") seem very strange in my eyes at least. I downloaded the code from Google, so the wording is not mine. To choose between searching my home page and searching in English seem to be a meaningless choice and I don't understand what Google means. I have tested both alternatives and not found any difference whatsoever.

Google has certain limitations and sometimes does not find words that demonstrably exist in my texts. For this reason I have another search engine (written in cgi-script). This engine is not so smart. You can not search for complete words or exact expressions so the result can sometimes be rather irrelevant. If you search for the word "evolution" the result will include all words that contain this word, e.g. revolution, counterrevolutions etc.

One problem is that this search engine does not give snippets from the text, so it is necessary to open all links to see which of them are relevant. However there are two settings that can be made, "Bolean" and "Case". Boolean "AND" means that all words in the search field will be searched for (but, you will find all pages that contain words of which the search words are parts — and one of the search words might be in the beginning of the document and the other at the end). "OR" means that one of the search words (if there are more than one) will give a hit. Case "SENSITIVE" makes it possible to search for names or words with a capital letter in the beginning.

It is possible to avoid an excessive number of hits by using these functions and searching for relevant and unusual word. I you use this primitive search engine in an intelligent way you will find that it works quite ok. You can not use metacharacters (*) with this search engine.

The great advantage of this search engine is that it finds everything (but sometimes everything can be so much that it is unusable).
