The search on is pretty basic and could do with some work as both you and Bo suggest. REBOL _is_ good at website searches, as the tool built by Gregg and Volker from some initial code from Carl on REBOL.ORG shows. Try these searches at (type into the "Find scripts" box) ;; any script with the word "parse" anywhere: parse ;; any script with "parse" in its title: parse in title ;; find small scripts: size <= 1000 ;; find very recent scripts: date > 01-oct-2003 It can't do boolean combinations of search parameters yet, so you can't find all of Gregg's recent additions... date > 01-sep-2003 and gregg in author ;; doesn't work ....but it should give you some idea of what is possible in REBOL for building a website search function.
