Hi Klaus,

If you want something simple with a Perl API, I'd suggest looking at Swish-e:

It supports Windows, has a Perl API for searching, and should require a lot less
code-writing if all you want to do is start indexing and searching.

Lucy is a library primarily for application developers; it's not intended as a
turn-key solution.

KinoSearch1 (which you got from ActiveState) is no longer actively developed.
