b2search has been revised, with some minor changes: no alterations of the database or the any existing concordance data is required. The changes only affect the processing of search requests.
This version addresses the following:
One other change is to add in a hidden input in the form that does the “submit”, so that an MSIE user hitting ENTER after typing the search term will get results.
There’s a persistent problem where hitting submit without any terms in the search text box will cause MSIE to hang. I may not be sending a termination in the PHP processing, or something along those lines, even though there are trailing HTML tags. On the other hand, it seems to work under lynx.
