From email@example.com Wed Dec 9 19:29:35 1998 Date: Thu, 10 Dec 1998 03:18:17 +0200 (EET) From: Jani Jaakkola <jjaakkol@cs.Helsinki.FI> Subject: ANNOUNCE: sgrep-1.90a - SGML and XML search and indexing tool
Sgrep-1.90a has been made available in source and binary form. Binaries are available for Win32, HP-UX, Linux, OSF1 and Solaris platforms.
Sgrep is a tool to search and index text, SGML, XML and HTML files using structured patterns. This example searches TITLE elements containing word Hamlet from Jon Bosaks XML-text collections (both the religious texts and Shakespeares works):
% time sgrep -x index 'stag("TITLE") .. etag("TITLE") containing word("Hamlet")' <TITLE>The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark</TITLE> 0.04user 0.01system 0:00.12elapsed 39%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 0maxresident)k 0inputs+0outputs (365major+73minor)pagefaults 0swaps
Sgrep-1.90a is still under development, but can be considered as a major step towards version 2.0.
New features in 1.90a include:
Query operators supporting direct containment. In SGML and XML world this means that you can query children and parents of given elements.
The sources are available under GPL-license for those interested in compiling sgrep themselves.
Sgrep now uses GNU autoconf, so compiling sgrep under Unix-systems should be easy.
Many bug fixes
