DelphiFAQ Site wide search function

Open source search tools: ht://dig and swish-e
DelphiFAQ currently uses swish-e for searching documents. The presentation of the results is home-made.
The crawler runs currently not on a fixed schedule. Instead I manually start the crawl process. I am still looking into optimizing the recrawl process. I start the crawler about every 2 or 3 days. This means that if you run a search on a string that appears in a very recent comment, then this string may not be found yet.
