Re: [benchivers] Efficient Search Engines


Quote
Do they operate using Perl?


Hehe, no.


Quote
Is Perl the most efficient and web server friendly language for creating search engines?


No.


Quote
Flat-file?


You really think a search engine with millions of records uses flatfile Laugh


Quote
I would have thought flat-file was the most efficient method, as all what would need to be opened was a file instead of a program which performs the query. Is this correct?


Definitely not.

Does anyone know how Google can search through so many webpages within just a couple of seconds, or not even that, and still return relevant results?


Try networking several thousand servers Smile
