in reply to Writing a Search Engine in Perl?

Your idea isn't crazy at all, it's even been done before. Too bad this isn't 1994 and you're not going to grad school at Stanford (I think), otherwise you might have made a lot of money. :)

I think that Perl is a very reasonable choice for a search engine of this kind. You'll want to look at text-encoding issues, but since you presumably speak Serbian you probably already know more about these than me.

As far as examples go, check out this article. Don't feel tied to the underlying algorithm, but working through their example would probably be informative.

    Yeah too bad I'm not on Stanford - and in 1994 I was ~ 11 years old - I don't say it's not possible to do it at that age, but at that time I was enjoining SEGA Mega Drive II and Amiga games :)

    As of making a lot of money - well - who knows. As I said, only other (real) search engine for Serbian sites (I don't count started recently. Actually a guy I know from classes/labs is director/SEO for it in Serbia. They started few years ago in nearby country Slovenia ...

    And somehow it's not it - and I believe it's written in Java ... so it naturally cant be good :D Just kidding of course.

    If such thing is made - I believe a lot of press coverage would come (also had Comunicology classes with some PR), it would be labeled Made in Serbia and could fit government project : Let's buy (in this case it would be use) domestic if that is the right word in English anyway.

    If anyone else has some nice recommendations on sources about creating a search engine ...
