Press Release

For Immediate Release

Lextek’s Onix Search Technology provides flexible full-text search of PDF files.

Provo, Utah - June 3, 2003 - Lextek International announces that its Onix Text Indexing and Retrieval Engine has been chosen by Adobe Systems, Inc.
for incorporation into the Acrobat 6.0 family of products. The Adobe Acrobat family of products includes Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional, Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Standard, Adobe Acrobat Elements 6.0 and Adobe Reader 6.0.

Adobe joins other developers who have found that Onix makes it easy to add full-text search capability to document management systems, as well as web-based and CD-ROM applications.
As an integral part of Acrobat 6.0, Onix makes it easy for Acrobat 6.0 users to search a folder of Acrobat PDF files for any word or phrase. Searches can be on a local computer or any computer on a LAN. Bringing its lightning-fast indexing and searching capabilities to the Acrobat 6.0 product line, Onix assists users and allows them to quickly search through their PDF files and collections. Onix also enables Acrobat or users to search additional elements of PDF files, including document structure, bookmarks, annotations, and metadata.

Onix Manages Enormous Amounts of Text

In addition to its use in Acrobat 6.0, Onix is used in a wide variety of computer applications, from electronic publishing, document management, and imaging to web crawlers, search engines, and mail routers. The Onix full-text indexing and retrieval toolkit provides flexibility and speed to applications that manage enormous amounts of text.

Onix provides fast indexing speed, even on systems where memory use is critical. Its indexing technology provides extremely high indexing throughput, allowing the indexing of gigabytes of data very quickly. Onix's proprietary index compression and storage technology allows the index for a given query term to be located and processed quickly even for large indexes. Onix supports a variety of index formats, allowing developers to tailor the toolkit to fit their application. Standard Boolean operators are supported, along with range searches, phrase searches and proximity searches.

With its easy-to-use API it's simple to integrate Onix into applications in Windows, DOS, MacOS, MacOSX, and all major varieties of UNIX and Linux.
