Title (EN) SEARCH SYSTEM THAT RETURNS QUERY RESULTS AS FILES IN A FILE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE RECHERCHE RENVOYANT DES RESULTATS DE RECHERCHE SOUS LA FORME DE FICHIERS DANS UN SYSTEME DE FICHIERS
Abstract:
(EN) Search systems that perform a search or inquiry to find information elements that satisfy some searching criteria usually return some indication of these information elements in a form that can be viewed or accessed only within the search system itself. An improved system presents the information elements as files in a conventional file system so that the search results can be viewed or accessed by essentially any program or other facility that is capable of accessing conventional files.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à des systèmes de recherche qui effectuent une recherche ou une interrogation pour découvrir des éléments d'information qui satisfont certains critères de recherche qui renvoient normalement une indication de ces éléments d'information sous une forme qui peut être visualisée ou accédée au sein du système de recherche lui-même. Un système amélioré présente les éléments d'information sous la forme de fichiers dans un système de fichiers classique de sorte que les résultats de recherche puissent être visualisés ou accédés essentiellement par tout programme ou toute autre installation qui est capable d'accéder à des fiches classiques.
