[REBOL] Re: web mining

From: hallvard:ystad:oops-as:no at: 18-Apr-2005 14:05

Hey, nice work! This reminds me of what we did some time back in a firm called HelpInHand. We built an application that would fetch a web page and turn it into a WML-page (dividing it into several pages if necessary). (See Mobile phone users then could surf anything. Now, mobile phones using wml never was a great success, and nowadays, mobile phones surf html, so the application wasn't all that much used. I used it a bit myself (along with the "customizer", that you may find some links to from the above link), for composing web pages with content from different sites (to view in an ordinary html broswer on a desktop computer). Rebol did a great job parsing through web pages and determining their structure (or lack of such). I reused som of that code when making the distorter (, another "funny web filter". And some of that old code is still in use for the RIX (a rebol search engine indexing rebol stuff: So, as we all seem to agree, rebol is great for web mining. Of all sorts.
