You could use ZCatalog with the Local File System product to index your text
files stored in the file system.

Subject: [Zope] Making lots of external data searchable?

> I'm using Zope to re-vamp a web site, one of whose most important
> features is an archive of a reasonably busy mailing list, which is
> accessed using home-grown Perl CGI code. I've written Python code to
> let users browse the archive sorted by users, subject etc., but now
> I'm looking at allowing text searches. The »old« instance of the web
> site used Glimpse and a simple CGI script (in Perl) to do this across
> the whole site (including the mail archive) and ideally this would be
> what I'm after for the new version as well.
> However, the mail archive now weighs in at about 45 MB in individual
> text files (one per message), and I don't really see myself putting
> this into the ZODB so I can use ZCatalog. ZCatalog, however, looks
> good for indexing the rest of the site (I haven't done this yet). Is
> there a reasonable way of interfacing Glimpse with the Zope searching
> machinery so I could again have one-stop searching of the whole site?
