Formatting the output from Swish-E

Hi, I have a Swish-E index that uses a CGI script to do the search and
return the results.

I would like to have more control over the formatting of the results that
are returned. If I use PHP instead how hard is it to drive the Swish-E
engine? Are there any examples of this?

Also, I would like to know how to return in the results the first few
hundred characters of text from the document, as I have seen on some sites.
Does this require a change to some other part of the Swish-E configuration?
