Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Veronica is a search engine system for the Gopher protocol, developed in 1992 by Steven Foster and Fred Barrie at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Veronica is a constantly updated database of the names of almost every menu item on thousands of Gopher servers. The Veronica database can be searched from most major Gopher menus.

The name, although officially an acronym for "Very Easy Rodent-Oriented Net-wide Index to Computer Archives", was chosen to match that of the FTP search service known as ArchieVeronica Lodge being the name of another character from the Archie Comics.

Veronica-2

Veronica-2 is a complete rewrite of Veronica by Cameron Kaiser. As of July 2008, its index contained 750,000 selectors. [1]
