I researched text retrieval systems about a year ago, so my information is
dated. I found a lot of information in a series of articles on text
management in the 1992 issue of Byte magazine. Despite the publication
date, the information is relevant.

These are the systems Byte reviewed:

I did not purchase a text retrieval system, so I have no personal
experiences. Most of the systems at that time were for DOS or Windows, and
a few were for the Mac.
