(ARCHIvE) An earlier Unix utility used to search for file names on Internet FTP sites. Considered by some as the first search engine, in its heyday before the Web, there were approximately 30 Archie servers throughout the Internet that maintained catalogs of files available for downloading from various FTP sites. Periodically, Archie servers searched the FTP sites and recorded information about the files they found. See FTP.
