Please follow up your queries on the newsgroup that you presumed to
elicit free advice!
There are two disparate meanings attributed to a generic "where is
source code for a search engine?" question. The first has to be a
disappointing "there is none available." The source code for the
major search engines, almost always based on the inktomi kernel
(see www.inktomi.com), is carefully guarded and never released
non-commercially (see www.searchenginewatch.com/resources/). However,
the good news is that quality software for CGI-capable search
engines (meant for internally hashing and searching of an intranet
or local web site) is freely available and in a constant state of
development and experimentation.
The most well known of this latter category is glimpse/webglimpse at:
