Library Tools in Perl, you know, libraries, with books...by Petras (Friar)
|on Jan 01, 2010 at 03:06 UTC||Need Help??|
Petras has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A funny thing happened to me on the way to google...We're trying to set up a community library (not a program library; a collection of books for the people on this island!). It'd make pretty good sense to order things in some sort of deweyish system. But I'm not a library scientist--I'm a Perl newbie. So I figured there'd be some Perl code somewhere useful to librarians. BUT if you search.cpan.org for Library you get 5000 results that don't quite match the problem :~)
So, a first nugget of Perl wisdom for which I seek is, "ANY IDEAS FOR BETTER SEARCH TERMS?!?!?!?"
A second thought, for anyone interested in jumping on a program to help a community service not-for-profit-project, I'd like to be able to enter book title and/or ISBN and/or author and/or publisher and/or copyright date, and have LWP buzz through a hundred public and campus library databases and give me the best few possible catalog numbers.
So, a question, what search words to use? :~)
