I’m a keen programmer using Perl. Self taught, I may add (but there are some great resources out there on the web). I’ve released two scripts to display Usenet 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. Click here to see the next generation version that uses mySQL.
