RE: multiple searches on a site

I had good luck installing multiple copies of swish.cgi. I put them in
the main web directory and used an .htaccess file to allow for their
execution outside the cgi-bin. As far as the modules, I installed them
all according to documentation and everything worked fine. It really is
a great set of scripts they have  put together!

Best regards,

Aaron Bazar

Subject: [SWISH-E] multiple searches on a site

OK, I feel like I'm being dense, but ...

I have multiple collections on the same web server that I'd like
to index and allow to be searched with swish.cgi. What's the best
way to go about this?

My first temptation was to put swish.cgi into the cgi-bin directory,
but then the config file stuff doesn't really work, because the
notion of current directory is broken. So I could have multiple
copies (symlinks, perhaps) of swish.cgi, one per collection home
page. But then ... where does the modules stuff go for the
templates? Should I just install those in the local perl
stash of goodies?

Like I said, I feel like I'm being dense, but it isn't at all obvious.
Others must have faces this before.
