Projects / RegExp@News


RegExp@News allows you to search through newsgroup articles with regular expressions. The whole process of specifiying the newsgroups, expressions, editing the personal preferences, viewing the found articles, and so on can be accomplished via a Web frontend. The system is also able to send found articles to the users by email. The users can select the newsgroups and expressions to be used in the search, as well as when they want to receive the found articles by email. All data are stored in a MySQL database. The article fetching and processing backend is built with Perl, and the Web frontend is built with Apache and PHP.
