    Question Looking for directory creation software

    We are looking for software that will display a directory on our site similiar to Yahoo, Google, etc:

    Arts
    Architecture, Artists, Crafts...

    Business
    Advertising and Marketing...

    Computing
    Internet, Software...

    The directory itself will be links that we gather and save in a repository (to be determined).

    It is important to be able to have multiple subcategories. Arelis makes a great product that would suit our needs except it only goes one level deep.

    I have looked into TurboSeek and PowerSeek, but as yet cannot go in that direction as they require perl, cgi.

    The potential number of links will be over 50,000 quickly, to I'd rather not script this myself.

    Any ideas?

    With that many links I would avoid a PERL/CGI solution. I would suggest taking a look at Links SQL http://www.gossamer-threads.com/scripts/links-sql/index.htm

    I've been playing some with Linker http://enproject.codelib.co.kr/ Here's a link to their demo:

    Thanks folks!

    Dave,
    According to the website LinksSQL requires perl with the DBI modules. I'm curious why you suggest avoiding a PERL solution? Its a server-side process yes? Database access isn't something I'm at all proficient with.

    Enigma,
    Good looking feature set there (the software, not the horns ).


    The search continues...

    Perl scripts tend to eat up more CPU resources than mySQL PHP ones.
