( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am looking for a projects area of PerlMonks. So far, this discussion is the existent of what I've found on the subject.

I am fascinated by, and very enthusiastic about, a peer to peer search engine I came across (YaCy). But I don't know Java.

I love Perl, of course.

I just came home from the Harvard coop book store with several heavy books on Java, but what I feel inclined to do is to create a Perl version of YaCy.

It will be a rather huge undertaking, that could take years. First of all, I have to learn Java, which I've never had much interest in before. I'm only learning it to figure out how YaCy works, and decide if the project is actually feasible.

I thought posting about the project, and giving occasional progress reports here might be worthwhile and interesting. I'm just wondering if there might not be a special area of PerMonks for that sort of thing. It isn't necessarily a collaborative project, but I suppose it could be, if anyone else was interested.

I'll keep looking, but, finding no indicator of the existence of such an area, on this rather old thread suggests the search may be futile.

Should I just start a new thread, or is PerlMonks an appropriate place for such a thing?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
