|1.||I have made the changes for the dictionary files to fit my server and I send you an attached file to see where is the problem to not get any result when I want to search for a word. Cat: Dictionary|
Take a look at the error message:
I can't open the server file:
You have definitions.txtdefinitions.txt back to back. Also, $cgipath and $server_file are both paths, but they look quite different on your script.
|2.||I downloaded the Perl dictionary script, but the .pl file came and the .txt file came but no html file came. Please can you sort it out ASAP? Thank you very much Cat: Dictionary|
There is no HTML file, it is to be used with a server side include. Create an HTML file with only this in it:
Then put header and body information around that like this:
|3.||I downloaded your file 'dictionary.zip, but I don't understand the format of the text file. Cat: Dictionary|
It should look like this:
Other Term&Other Definition with a reference to #[# term #]# .
Term is the Term you want defined. The 'Definition' is the definition for Term. If you want to have a link in the results to other Terms' definitions, then enclose those Terms in #[# brackets #]# .
|4.||I want to know the architecture behind it. Does it use an SQL database structure? Is it written in PHP? Can I put my website skin around it? Is it quick to access? Cat: Dictionary|
It uses a flatfile database, and is written in Perl. Using simple 'server side includes' tags (SSI) you can make it look like the rest of your site. It's very fast to access.
|5.||Will this script handle very large dictionaries? Cat: Dictionary|
It depends on what you mean by very large. A thousand definitions is manageable, but the nature of the flat file database means that the script opens the whole file before it searches. Anything larger than this will definitely slow the process down.
