Hmmm... then do you provide some way to make this search? I saw a few
perl modules implementing it but I would still require an index.

I was trying to avoid such ugly things since I was hoping to get a
reliable application for the rest of the lab but if there's no other
solution... do you already have the code to do this? Or do you mean
that's how you would do it if you had to?

Thanks in advance,
