I was wondering if something like Google Desktop would exist for the NAS. A webbased document retrieval engine, that crawls .doc .xls .txt and so on and provides a clean and mean web frontend to show the search results.
This should exist as a module using the Apache/mysql modules.
I have a document retrieval and categorization engine written in C that I could try to convert into a module. If anyone points me to a tutorial on how to install gcc on the NAS or how to port code to it, perhaps I try something.
And if anybody knows about such a search engine like Lucene or Google Desktop that runs directly on top of the NAS software stack - please tell us. That's really the missing link for me.
