No. Much as I love UNIX, platform does not enter into my picture.

I am primarily interested in indexing HTML docs for Web sites because
that's what I'm doing. I am secondarily interested in indexing any
E-document via any media because I'm an insatiably curious monkey.
Trust me - I'm interested.
>Another suggestion: Why not post your indexing questions on INDEX-L?
Because I'm too lazy to subscribe. However, I am slowly becoming
motivated to do so. I actually enjoy indexing - and I'm even sick
enough to admit it. ;) Is there an equivalent news group? Mail groups
are difficult for me.
If this thread doesn't generate more interest, should I take my questions
