Hello David,

Any simple textfiles are suitable, such as the ones in Exercise sheet 3.

You may safely assume that the files used for testing will only have '<' and '>' around
the terms required in the index, and that each '<' will be followed by '>' on the same line.
Obviously, files with any HTML tags are unsuitable.

This task is about simple pattern matching, and not parsing.
