What do you think about e-swish, Kinosearch and Lucene?

Aside speed and relevance of searches, I am also interested in the easiness 
of indexing and I am searching for a program that also has the tools for 
indexing web pages (and not static files).

Are there search programs that have a command line program (or a perl 
module) that can be used for indexing an entire site, specifying just the 
main URL and maybe a few other options?

Thank you.
