Hello, I just found out about Ferret. I am searching for good/capable/fast search engine, but I also would want to talk to the search engine using TCP. Is there a way to run the search engine as a daemon so that it handle the request over sockets? Kind regards Zach

I have not heard of such a feature being built-in, but it would not be difficult to code. You could just write a small ruby program that listens on a port, accepts a search string, feeds it to Ferret, formats Ferret's results, and sends back a response.
