I am a 3rd year computer studies student at the Southampton Institute of
Higher Education and I am attempting to produce a rule based search engine, to
search a database of housing records for my final year project.

Basically it will be a multi-field form, whereby people will be able to search
a database I will construct of house records, using certain criteria, price,
location etc.

I have been told there are tools to design such systems available(for free) but
have had difficulty in finding anything.

If you can point me in the direction of any sites where I can download a shell
for such a program, or can give me a freeware or shareware version yourself,
or any other information I would be very grateful.
