Wolfram Notebook Indexer Wolfram Research has released Wolfram Notebook Indexer as part of an ongoing effort in search and conversion tools for Mathematica notebooks. Wolfram Notebook Indexer is a Mac OS X Spotlight plug-in that supports text and metadata searches of all Wolfram notebooks (.nb) on the local hard drive, including those that are part of Mathematica's online help system. Wolfram Notebook Indexer does not use or need Mathematica; it instead leverages the open, structured syntax of notebook files to convert them to text easily indexed by the Spotlight searching engine.

Spotlight is only available in Mac OS X 10.4 (also known as Mac OS X Tiger).

When the final version of Wolfram Notebook Indexer becomes available, Wolfram Research will open-source the application, making the notebook parsing code available to external developers who want to write their own searching and conversion tools for Mathematica notebooks.

Bug reports or comments about Wolfram Notebook Indexer should be submitted to prerelease@wolfram.com.
