[Samba] Application Question

I'm trying to build a dynamic engine that will create a list of all the
files in the Samba shares as well as the properties of that file. For
example if you right click a Word document or Excel document there is an
extensive amount of information about the file, keyword information, author
etc etc .. I'd like to be able to read that information, as well as the
file path and dynamically update a web enabled search tool. Currently I
have to run a shell script which outputs a text file that I load nto a
mysql db and search on using a php interface. It is neither dynamic and all
it does is list file names and paths. I might have to go to CPAN.org and
dig through the perl mods .. I don't know .. I'd just rather not reinvent
the wheel if someone else has already done work in this area and is willing
to share then I'd be interested.
