This program is being developed for text exchanging and cataloguing on the net.
With this program is possible to create a collection of the most actual texts and/or a link database to other DE_TEXT programs on the net.
Crystalizing in such a way branching structures [connected and not connected with each other], based not on mechanical ring-like concept, but on the taste and interests of the DE_TEXT user.
Many of the net journals just republishing-downloading texts to their server and each of these e-zines is different, having different themes and original design – very often it makes search of the texts difficult and uncomfortable. Texts being scattered all over the net without availability to find them quickly; possibility of circulation of these texts becomes low and intricate. Another possible use of DE_TEXT – is the ability of new texts addition-uploading to a net journal or to a database [i.e. using DE_TEXT like a hidden tool].
Since the purpose of many publications on the net very often is cataloguing of the texts you like most, or of those which are most important to you. DE_TEXT should make the search of the texts easier and more dynamic.
DE_TEXT – the tool for publishing, but not the publication itself. Such as it is now, DE_TEXT alpha-d_txt-001 – the germinal of interconnected on-line databases with the same markup language. The most important problem for now is the development of the text[data] descriptional language and an addition of more search methods.
DE_TEXT will read and show information of HTML files. If the file extension is “.html” or “.htm” then DE_TEXT will recognize it as HTML.
Titles for non-HTML [non .html, .htm] files you can insert into the file tags.dxt
Syntax is simple:
Means markup language version of the program.
#fail_name.ps – the start of the file tags.
fail_name.ps# – the end of the file tags.
Title tag is the same like in HTML.
The title text is preceded by the start tag and ends with the matching end tag .
There are plans to add more tags and functions in the future.
It is possible to use major search engines for that purpose. Insert “::DE_TEXT::de_text themes” into your index file [index.html] metatags content.
So inserting “::DE_TEXT::art,net” into the search engines search field, should find DE_TEXT’s having such themes[or one of these]. The prefix “::DE_TEXT::” has to refine the search, selecting DE_TEXT’s only.
DE_TEXT may sort files according to modification[upload] time, alphabet, size. You can choose whether to show titles of sorted files or not.
After uploading all file names will be lowercase. DE_TEXT will count the lines of HTML [including the lines with tags] and .TXT files.
Upoloading and file deletion available via net. Editing of DE_TEXT’s links page might be done via web interface as well.
Colors may be chosen in the configure.inc file.
