    yesterday i came across this project
    http://remora.wiki.sourceforge.net/

    i have been searching for weeks for an app that will index my pdfs and allow me to search them, or at the very least search one that is open.
    no document readers or ebooks have this functionality. text guru and ebookreader look the best btu they dont support pdfs.

    i have an extensive library on encylopedias and what not that i want to make searchable on my iphone and this Remora project seems to be the most promising.

    has anyone tried it, does anyone have it running on 2.1?
    i exchanged emails with the developer but he is no longer working on it, though it seems it should work fine on 2.1
    it requires lighttpd which i found in cydia and installed but i can not get it to run. does any one have lighttpd running successfully?

    does anyone have any other solutions for what i am trying to do?
    i also was looking for away to convert pdfs to pdbs which could be read in ereader and searched if open, but not an index of all the pdfs.

    thanks
