hi happy diggers,
Till' 1.3.0 the contrib scripts (whatsnew ...) was not working anymore due to
drastic changes into Ht://Dig databases formats, this was a pity because
these scripts was very useful; So I wrote HtDig.pm a perl module that
interface the htdig databases and more, except for some little features
missing (*) you can now read back all the docdb, word.db ... databases, even
compressed with Zlib !! This module have too a nice OO design ;-) and is easy
to use, see the companion scripts to give you an idea of how easy it is to
write scripts using htdig dbs.
This module is a beta version, many things still need to be implemented in it
(the famous missing features (*) ;-)) and BTW this is my FIRST Perl module so
please be indulgent, thanks (any constructive criticism accepted).
You can access them @

(*) the missing features: hummm, in fact there is ONLY ONE missing feature
for HtDig.pm to be really usable with all kind of configurations but ... this
is A BIG ONE ;-( It doesn't still take into account the `common_url_parts'
directive ... I know this could be very embarrassing caus' common_url_parts
have a default value and if you don't EXPLICITLY set it to null in the
config file it is activated, and furthermore changing it implies to rebuild
completely the databases... Anyway I choose to release HtDig.pm now even with
that pb because I hope somebody will help and contribute that missing feature
- this is not difficult but it need few time to understand how it is done in
the C++ code - I'll have *no time* to work on it at all next month, so if
anybody is interested and ll'have time to do it it will be wonderful.
