( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Some weeks ago I spent half a Sunday on writing the beginnings of a web based newsreader. One of the things I am missing is threading. I was planning to implement jwz's threading stuff from http://www.jwz.org/doc/threading.html in Perl, but I haven't had time. Does anyone have suggestions for other algoritms?

I am making it to work with the perl.org nntp server. If you didn't know, then the "newsserver" I use is colobus (http://trainedmonkey.com/colobus/) which serves directly from the ezmlm archives. It's supposed to replace the MHonArc archives at http://archive.perl.org/.

I have put the current Mason components up at http://develooper.com/~ask/tmp/mason-nntp.tar.gz. If anyone wants to hack new features into it, then I'd be most grateful and be happy to put it up on http://nntp.perl.org/, of course with proper credits.

To make the threading more efficient I've been considering letting the web interface access colobus' BerkeleyDB databases directly, or export separate BerkeleyDBs with the relevant data for use in the web interface.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
