I found someting called marc-search from Mhonarc's home page, which
searches in Mhonarc archives. I can also search in several

Marc-search (I've used it) has the disadvantage of running a Perl
regex across the files for every search. WebGlimpse (which I now use)

access the index and then cross check the source files for matches.
ie Marc-search can hammer your system or take a long time when
searching large numbers of files. WebGlimpse is much faster and
