Perl: the Markov chain saw

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, if someone went through the trouble of adding the support for "smart synonyms" to the search why not then just use all this wonderful, portable Perl(the only kind vroom writes :) to then take the step further and do the check as one's posting in SOPW? It strikes me that getting the 'synonym' stuff right would be the hard part and parsing through the text of a new entry to stip out junk (non-keyword prepositions, proper nouns, monk names, etc.) would be the easy(ier) part.

I'd also like to add that the way to display this info might be something like a sliding scale of matching. (this is oddly enough inspired by the 'what to expect' seiries of books that all parents in the monastery should be all too familiar with). The strongest matches could be listed as 'most possible', followed by 'probably relevant', 'possibly relevant' and 'shot in the dark'. And, if we're to consider Considering Super Search, maybe we could allow people to choose only strong matches, etc. etc. I would think that posts for SOPW would actually be parsed for the weakest matches, though.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
