What is Perl? Well, here are some resources that’ll help you out.
I’m now getting into the flow writing perlscripts for various purposes. I’ve already released two scripts to display newsgroup statistics (ngstatistics) to the world. I know that the first version (not requiring a database) was/is used on various newsgroups around the world. The second version (using a mySQL database), not so much. It’s a shame, as it provides much more detailed information. Saying that, V1 is simpler to install and run.
I no longer store the newsgroup statistics programs on this site and have decided to use SourceForge as my preferred choice.
Both programs collect newsgroup statistics from a local news spool and is used to post them to the group concerned.
Go here to find out more about version 1. Note this takes stats from a local news spool and no mySQL installation is needed.
