Thought that much. ;-)

My bad, I initially thought Ryan was simply quoting the FPC docs URL
with a "wish for a search URL". It's only after I sent my first reply
that I actually clicked on the URL and noticed the search box. Very nice
to see it available now.

How is the search data generated - via fpdoc? What storage format does
it use?
I remember years ago I found a JavaScript search engine that could be
integrated with fpdoc's HTML output, but that storage format was
JavaScript (if I remember correctly) and was huge.
