Functuonality / use case:
I want to run a full text search over a few thousands of MS Word-, pdf- and OOe-files. These files are stored in a filing system of directories and sub-directories. I need to search for a number of key words which I combine with AND, OR and NOT. There should also be the possibility of searching for a sequence of words like “water supply and sanitation”.
Which software do you recommend for this use case which runs under openSUSE/KDE?
I have been using Kerry Beagle. But when my colleague cross checked the search result for the same key-word in the same directory/across the same set of files by using the search function of the MS File Explorer, the search resulted in much more hits/results than this was the case with Kerry Beagle. Hence, I am a bit worried if Kerry Beagle really finds all documents. Does anybody have an explanation for this?
How does Kerry Beagle initialize documents? How can I ensure that the software initializes all documents in the directory and sub-directory system. It might be relevant to mention that this file system is share and used by many users, some work under Linux others work under MS. Users are able to store and remove files.
