Abstract

Internet Gopher is a distributed server document search and retrieval system. Gopher combines the features of both electronic bulletin board services (a hierarchical organization of items) and of full-text searchable databases (searches based on the content of documents where all words in the document are considered keywords). The Internet Gopher system is based on a client/server architecture so users on a heterogeneous mix of desktop systems can browse, search, and retrieve documents residing on multiple distributed server machines anywhere on the Internet.
