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.

% time sgrep -x index 'stag("TITLE") .. etag("TITLE") 
        containing word("Hamlet")'
<TITLE>The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark</TITLE>
