Filled a need to enable efficiently search across networked documents.
The best option out there.
DocFetcher must be considered a remarkable program in any company, paid or free. The GUI is simple, easy to understand and unique among free search programs, providing both instant search results, the ability to both scroll between hits and to read all of the text of any file containing hits, as well to directly open any file of interest in its native viewing program. The accompanying documentation is excellent and the support offered by the author is second to nothing. I have used the program to test search a set of rtf files comprising about 50,000 pages of text as well to search another 1100 pages of text in pdf format. The results have been exemplary, in no way falling behind the capabilities of certain high profile programs with which I have compared it. Individual words, pairs of words, phrases, file names and content titles can be instantly found with ease and reliability. Word proximity searching is provided as well as other more advanced search means. The scope of each search can be determined according to the users preference at the time. To the extent that I have used DocFetcher to date, I recommend DocFetcher without hesitation or reserve. Although DocFetcher is offered free of change, some things in life are worth paying for and this is one of them.
