Very Easy Rodent-Oriented Netwide Index to Computerized Archives

This contrived acronym is really the name of a front end for searching Gopher servers. A Veronica search looks for file names and produces a menu of items linked to a Gopher data source. It's actually named after a character from the Archie comics series, because Veronica searches Gopher sites in the same way that Archie searches FTP archives.
