Enhanced SiteSearch  
sent in the following hack...

Here's the email he wrote us.

I have modified the SiteSearch code as follows:

  • Include the description meta tag in the search results.
  • Exclude FrontPage extensions files from the search results.
  • Beginner friendly comments.

There's a more detailed description and a setup procedure in the README file. Being new to Perl myself I have made special effort with the comments, especially for the append operator and the minimal matching.

I haven't changed the code header in search_engine.cgi where the copyright and authors statement is. If you would like to include me as a contributor you'll be more than welcome.
