Smart Index

Even with a good printed index at the end of a book it is often difficult to track all sections where a given topic is discussed or mentioned. Our Smart Index of the 2nd Edition (AD2003) solves this problem. It contains kind of all text in the entire book, except:

bullet

To make the file smaller, all instances of 181 unnecessary "noise words" were removed (see a list).

bullet

We cannot give away the book contents on a Web page, so each word under a given heading appears only once (this also makes the file smaller), and the words are sorted alphabetically.

bullet

The text in any figures (drawings or screen shots) is not included.

Note that each word is independent, so any phrase such as "global catalog" is not maintained, and "catalog" and "global" appear independently in the list. Also, any punctuation is considered a word delimiter, so "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" is actually three words: "HKEY", "LOCAL", and "MACHINE".

When you open the resulting file in a browser, you can search for any word using your browser's Find feature. This way you can find all the locations where objectGuid, for example, is mentioned in the book.
