Description: Simple Document Indexing System for Humans: C++ version
 SWISH++ is a Unix-based file indexing and searching engine
 (typically used to index and search files on web sites).  It
 was based on SWISH-E although SWISH++ is a complete rewrite.
 SWISH++ was developed to circumvent author's difficulties with
 using the SWISH-E package.
   * Lightning-fast indexing
   * Indexes META elements, ALT, and other attributes
   * Selectively not index text within HTML or XHTML elements
   * Intelligently index mail and news files
   * Index Unix manual page files
   * Apply filters to files on-the-fly prior to indexing
   * Index non-text files such as Microsoft Office documents
   * Modular indexing architecture
   * Index new files incrementally
   * Index remote web sites
   * Handles large collections of files
   * Lightning-fast searching
   * Optional word stemming (suffix stripping)
   * Ability to run as a search server
   * Easy-to-parse results format
   * Generously commented source code

It only needs a gui frontend, e.g. in python.

I'm using it on my documetation partition (2.5Gb) and never saw a faster 
search and indexing tool like swish++. And so it was on my old machine, AMD 
K6-III 500Mhz, should be comparable to a PIII 400Mhz.
