[re-sent after bounced by mail server] ALTME ARCHIVE SEARCH You may remember that some months ago we added the archives of some Altme worlds to ...and said that a search feature was coming soon. It did not come soon enough but it is there now:'m a little disappointed that it is a tad on the slow side -- taking a second or two; but it is still much faster than the native Altme search. **** WHAT WORLDS? We have archives of these worlds: -- REBOL3 -- the current main hangout for REBOL developers. Only the [web-public] groups are archived -- user.r -- a subset of groups from REBOL3 concerning the user association -- REBOL1 and REBOL2 -- the predecessors to REBOL3 You may not have automatic access to all those world archives. For example. REBOL1 and REBOL2 are visible only for the original members of those worlds.....If you think you should have access to a world, please drop us a feedback message, quoting your world user name and your member name **** TECHNICAL BACKGROUND The search is a pure REBOL solution, built mainly on code freely available in the Library. The main components are: -- skimp.r -- an indexer -- make-word-list.r -- extracts indexable words from strings -- rse-ids.r -- a way of compacting runs of numbers -- tsn.r -- a way of allocating blocks of unique serial ids Much of the code in those scripts had been contributed or highly tuned (in response to various Algorithm Challenges) by members of the REBOL Community, making this a highly collaborative effort. Thanks once more to everyone. Technically, it was interesting because of the volumes involved. We could already efficiently index the large volume of data in the Mailing List Archive -- some 9000 threads with an average of a couple of hundred words per thread. But this was a different corner of the scale graph: 180,000 posts, many with as few as single word {usually LOL, or equivalent). That's what some of the Algorithm Challenges were about! **** Enjoy using it, and please tell me the bugs you find. Sunanda

Hey! Not bad Sunanda! Nice looking output, and results come back in good time. Regards, Anton. Sunanda wrote:
