SINP Update

December 28, 2006 at 5:03 pm Leave a comment

I did some cleaning up of SINP last night, and the searching function is complete. You can now use SINP to search the slackbuilds.org by application name (default) or by the descriptions in the SlackBuild’s README and slack-desc file. Description searching takes a loooooong time mainly because wget hangs on every couple of files. It looks more like a server problem than with SINP. When SINP’s not stuck it usually reads the descriptions pretty fast. Unfortunately description searching sometimes gives false positives. For example if I’m searching for the word term, probably searching for some terminal application, returns stuff if term is found in any word in the description. (like determine)

Maybe this could be fixed by requiring a match in both the README and slack-desc files, or maybe I could just learn grep better. πŸ˜‰

Also, in the future I’d like to be able to use more than one keyword for description searching, but for now I’m completely happy with my results and have submitted the project to sourceforge.net for review. So in a couple of days I should have a nice place to host SINP and a skeleton website up. πŸ™‚
