Agent based computing has been a much debated topic of research. There are a lot of applications based on multi-agent system which is based on the concept of migration of an executing program from one computer to another. However, searching over a multi-agent, distributed platform is tedious and memory exhaustive. The authors' paper describes an agent based system over a distributed network, which can be deployed for searching files and also provides transparency to the user. This paper would help a programmer decide how an agent based approach could be applied for extracting files in a distributed network.
