View Full Version : Database Import

Forgive me for not asking if I can post this, I removed your name - but I figure I'm not the only person in the world to spider pages for variable content :)

I bet someone has a working script for this already.


Is it possible to have all the character class conversion of wiki into a datafile ?

I am just trying to use wiki without having to type everything again.


Yes, but you get extreme data poisoning.

I had a script for it that worked 2 years ago for another project. Unfortunately, php has an incompatibility issue with EOF markers (on mac osx 10.3.9 which is last risk processor os they wrote before switching to intelmac),which means I can't open a file of unknown length.

I've tried every hack possible & until I get a new computer - I can't write the stupid file & test it! The trick logically, is that if we know each page is the same length just to the data you want, I can set an artificial length limit (then it works).

I had the same idea last year...just no way of tuning it. I can send the source code I wrote to you sometimes this week or next weekend.

Hell, I think I have an object oriented version which sets it all up in an array with the index label as a string (which means you can do a straight insert to the table for each entry).

of course you can Name me :)

What kind of format does it get out ?
You store the wiki files in a database, no ?

The script parses the domain info stats on right side bar, then returns an array with label as index. I'm still digging for it in my files. I might have paper copies in duluth - but I don't have time to go there this weekend :(
