The documentation that we provide with our product includes about 1000 HTML pages and a dozen PDF files. We would like to add a search utility to our documentation, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for. This utility would need to run locally (offline), both on Unix and Windows platforms. Ideally, it would also be cheap. :-) I can only find search engines for Intranets or search engines that run remotely on a server, and they are all quite expensive.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.
