[REBOL] Re: web mining

From: thomas:cr:gmai:l at: 16-Apr-2005 15:20

rebol is in fact quite useful for web mining which is the reason i'm using it for a project i'm working on called webminutes (http://www.webminutes.org). parse grammars are in fact quite powerful for that! you might be interested in looking at how webminutes works. unfortunately, the web site is only in french right now. the code however is in english. so what is this webminutes concept? it was originally designed for people like me who take public transport, have access to a printer and haven't quite found their ideal newspaper. the idea is thus to generate automatically a newspaper which you print at work with content retrieved from various websites. you configure it once on the website using a php interface by writing rebol code and parsing grammars in the html forms. you then use daily the rebol/core scripts to generate your webminutes newspaper. if there is a demand, i might look into making the website multilingual... let me know. i believe i put some english documentation a while ago on sourceforge but it might help but is out-of-date. tc On 4/15/05, Ladislav Mecir <[lmecir--mbox--vol--cz]> wrote:
