Auto linking to words in a text fileby belize (Deacon)
|on Dec 01, 2000 at 21:58 UTC
belize has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I know I have seen this before but can't seem to locate it. I have a text file that is returned from a database search. Before the file is displayed, go through the text and match against a link file, where if a word appears, it is automatically linked to another file, similar to the nodes on this site.
I've searched this site using "auto link" and "linking words auto" without luck.
By the way, the answers to a previous question about generating graphics with GD resulted in a successful project. Thanks for the hints. You can see the results at http://www.belizeexplorer.com. The maps are generated on the fly. I would link to the SOPW entry for this, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet on here.
