Both the -S http and method require perl.

Are you trying to write an ASP web interface for indexing?  Most just index
from the command line, I imagine.

I'd think the easy way would be to grab Perl from Activestate, but if you
can't do that for some reason, then maybe you could write your own program
to spider and pass the docs to swish using -S prog.  I'd imagine since
there are so many tools to grab docs over http in the unix world that there
are probably some utilities in the DOS world to do that, too.

Right.  Blame it on Outlook ;)
