Search and Index files...

I'm looking for a tool or library (that can be used with C#) that would allow
me to index many HTML files and to perform a search on this index. I'm
looking for something that could be used on a desktop application (not like
most of the Search-Index engine (dtSearch, Dieselpoint, etc. that requires to
be used on a Web based application).

My application is allowing our customer to visualize our publications, we
would like to provide them with an efficent search functionality (similar to
the search that can be used with HTML help or other Help viewer). The
application is installed locally on their computer.

Any suggestions or ideas?

PL,

Well, without resorting to custom search algorithms and whatnot, I would
say to use Windows Desktop Search (or whatever it is called now) and
programatically access that.

You could also use the regular FindFile APIs, but that might be a little
slow (and you don't have to rely on Windows Desktop Search being installed).

Take a look at DotLucene, which is an excellent C# port of the JAVA Lucene
library.
