DocuLex Desktop Search with dtSearch Terabyte Indexer
DocuLex, the specialists in document management, scanning and image processing, and dtSearch, The Smart Choice for Text Retrieval® since 1991, announce a new version of DocuLex Desktop Search. With the dtSearch terabyte indexer embedded, the latest release can index over a terabyte of data in a single index, up from 4-8 gigabytes of text per index. (The application can also create and simultaneously search an unlimited number of indexes.) Search time typically remains less than a second.
DocuLex Desktop Search can run both as a standalone PC application, and a client-server application, searching both PC-based content and network-based content in a concurrent-search environment. The application provides over two dozen hit-highlighted search options. Through a built-in Spider, the application can also add Internet and Intranet sites to a search, all with integrated results.
DocuLex Desktop Search provides the ability to instantly locate electronic document files among terabytes of data literally in under a second, through both full-text and fielded data searches,_ comments Tim Nissen, Marketing Director for DocuLex. _The search speed is inspirational.
This latest release of DocuLex Desktop Search, in combination with DocuLex_s document imaging and processing technology, creates a comprehensive electronic information management solution for businesses large and small,_ says Kate Tretter, Vice President of Marketing for dtSearch.
Supported content. DocuLex Desktop Search (with the embedded dtSearch), whether running in a stand-alone or client-server capacity, can index and search a wide variety of content. The application supports HTML, XML and PDF (including OCR output to PDF), with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links and formatting intact. Other file types that the application displays with highlighted hits include: word processor, database, spreadsheet, presentation and similar _Office_ files; and email message stores (MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express, MS Exchange, Eudora and other .MSG formats) along with the full-text of attachments, ZIP files, and CSV files.
Built-in Spider. XML-based distributed search capabilities in the application includes integrated searching of local and remote indexed content. The built-in dtSearch-based Web-spidering technology provides:
• searching of local or remote Web-based content to any specified level of horizontal or vertical depth

• integrated relevancy-ranking of all spidered and non-spidered data
• _WYSWYG_ display of dynamic and static content with highlighted hits
• support for public sites, secure content HTTPS sites, password-accessible sites and forms-based authentication
Search options. Indexed, unindexed, fielded and full-text search options include: fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus (both through a built-in thesaurus and through optional user-defined synonym rings), 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, and user-defined variable term weighting. The application also includes international language support through Unicode, covering hundreds of Unicode-supported languages.

• a scrolling list of indexed words, for instant feedback as a word is typed in.
