CNET GLOSSARY: Terms for the techie
A front end for searching Gopher servers. A Veronica search looks for filenames and produces a menu of items linked to a Gopher data source. It's named for a character from the Archie comics, because it searches Gopher sites in the same way that Archie searches FTP archives. The name has also been said to stand for "very easy rodent-oriented Netwide index to computerized archives."
