CD Search

Runtime search on CD - What is your recommendation for an inexpensive (but not free) search utility to add to a data CD for use in searching its contents?

A few years ago, AltaVista Personal fit this bill, but it is no longer an option for post-Win98 computers. dtSearch wants me to pay $2,500 for the privilege, and I'd rather not.

I've used Copernic Desktop Search on my desktop, but I have no idea how feasible it would be to burn it and its index to a CD.

Glimpse is commercial. Might work.

htDig is GPL, not exactly what you're looking for since it's oriented toward HTTP searching but might work.

Doodle should work.

Namazu should work.

I'm pretty happy with WhereIsIt for years now.
It could do almost everything to catologize your cds, dvds, files ...
