All the Perl that's Practical to Extract and Report
Tuesday August 05, 2003
I've setup a quick Gedcom CGI::App here.
Warning! It's DAMN slow. It's running on a P166 and reading straight out of the gedcom file.
- generate static content, when needed (ie. if static content is older than gedcom file). This should allow people to simply plug-in a new or updated gedcom file and not have to worry about anything.
- create a better surname index
- better individuals index
- some sort of individual index
- search facility
- improve semi-arbitrary data harvesting. (including pointers -- currently pointers are shown as their type, and only one pointer is shown even if multiple exist in the record). The most obvious uses are for spousal and child-parent pointers.
Anyway, that's in no way a complete list, but it's a start. Please post your comments/suggestions/feature requests here.
Eventually I'll move the code to CVS.
