Description:
Greetings,

I had some custom work done before on a pl which searches for link popularity.

This script searches for user-inputted urls and searches for them on search engines. Currently it DOES work but I want it improved.

I want the results in a color format depending on number of results. Ie. 0-299 links found would show up blue. The results will be in a group, all X number of hits or the X color will be grouped together. Like if I had 2 websites with 199 hits and one with 88234. The 2 with the same colorgroup will be grouped together. I will need about 5-7 different background colors for the table depending on the amount of listings it finds.

The next thing I want improved is the speed. It currently takes over 3 minutes for the program to process all information and post the data to the screen. I want it to be considerably faster.

Lastly I have it setup in a layout such as this:
website search 1 search2
www.go.com #hits #hits

At the end of each url being searched I want it to add ALL the hits it finds and place that in a category that says TOTAL. When accepted to do this project you will better see what I mean.

Please post questions, comments, and price quotes.

Thanks.

Aaron

I can definitely do the layout changes. Sorting, grouping, totaling and subtotaling are things that perl does very well. Indexing groups to colors is also straight forward. As to the speed issue -- I don't know. There are so many variables in the speed equation -- in_file format(flat vs batabase), in_file location (local vs network), number of records, (can't control any of these) -- but can control the read logic, the parsing logic, internal data storage, sort sequences, search and group logic. All I can promise is that I will analyze it. If I find processing ineficiencies, I will fix them. -- -- If you are working with a large number of records from a flat file, you may need to consider a cron job to do some cleaning and reformatting, and maybe store in database. This would allow this script to be considerably faster.
