Jughead is an information search program for Gopher servers from the 1990s that searches Gopher menus in a similar way to Veronica
. Unlike Veronica, Jughead worked only on a regional basis, such as all the gopher servers at a university. In many cases, limiting the search to afew gopers
yielded better results faster than with Veronica. Jughead is a kind of precursor to the World Wide Web (WWW) and one of several gopher search engines.
