Site search classes?

P: n/a
Are there good pre-canned php site search mechanisms?

I've worked with lucene in the java servlet context,
and I like lucene a lot. But it isn't available
on the shared host server I have to work with now.

I know I could roll my own with mysql full-text-search on MyIsam
tables.
But that would take some nuts and bolts programming time.

I was hoping to use something more like:
tar -xvzf php_precanned_search.tgz instead.
Thank you.......

Is there a reason you don't wish to use Google's Site Search feature?

.....now that you mention it, maybe site search can be hacked
to work for what I need. I'll have to look into exclusion
operators.

My site has almost 1000 static pages. But each such page
also has a dynamic version (shows the same page with
smaller images, for use by 800x600 people).

Google site search keeps turning up those dynamic links.
Maybe there is some sort of a minus operator I can fiddle with.

I guess if I want fine-grained control (search the forum
but not the pages, or versa visa) I'll just have to suck it
up and roll my own.

.....there is another resson, perhaps more to the point:
My site serves as an experimental development platform,
so my links change frequently (for better or for worse).
And stale links take up to a half a year to disappear
from Google.

Check out the google doc for submitting site maps.
