pSearch Source!!

leave a comment »

So I had some trouble getting my source put onto wordpress.  I can understand their point, they don’t want to share .zip, .tar or any other archive container formats.

In the intrest of brevity, I decided to just use a free file host.  I chose medifire, it was top on google when I checked.

There is where you can find the historical archives of my search development.  I did my best to ensure that it could be compiled on Windows (32-bit XP via, MinGW) or Linux (ubuntu 64-bit server), sometimes OpenBSD. You’ll likely need sqlite (http://www.sqlite.org/) and libcurl (http://curl.haxx.se/), you’ll probably need pcre libraries as well (http://www.pcre.org/).  If you try to compile something that looks like it should work, let me know and I’ll see if there’s any libraries that I might be missing, or at least I can let you know if it SHOULD compile.

As of right now, I’m working on a complete rewrite.

This rewrite I’m hoping will serve as good working reference code.  It will be clear, easy to understand and most likely SLOW.  I am now using ODBC instead of limiting users to sqlite.  This also will hopefully allow enterprises to adopt use without too much trouble.  I decided to scrap the web-server aspect – hopefully someone will want to bundle search and web-server for home use.  Especially with the wide adoption of ipv6 a single workstation could easily share information with others all indexed through a private search network.  At the very least someone should write an nginx (http://nginx.org/), lighttpd (http://www.lighttpd.net/) and apache (http://www.apache.org/) module that indexes static and cached content and publishes the search results.

That leads me to trying to build this as an ip-agnostic application. I want it to run in both an ipv4 and ipv6 network. Of course this has it’s own challenges as well.  I’m trying to maintain ANSI compliance where I possibly can so that it can be easily portable, and mostly so that it can run on windows or unix without too much trouble.
