xinabse is not a big search engine

xinabse is a search engine for small to medium sized sites. It consists of a HTTP spider written in Perl and a templateable frontend in PHP. Keywords and sites are stored in a MySQL database.

If you want to see it in action you can search my RAF-Infopage which uses xinabse in embedded mode (page in german).
