One of my most productive days was throwing away 1000
lines of code.
Finally, I am there! the coding session started.
I received the lost book yesterday morning and I have already finishes this second reading (first was during my thesis given up in 1994 to focus on my very first startup). By bits, I remember the explanations of the mechanisms. A true pleasure.
The final version of this work will be branded "pyfilter". Parking to sourceforge dot net with a GPL v3 license is envisaged.
For now, this experimental development can be followed here. Do not hesitate to make comments or proposals, the long term objective being to obtain a good usable and used library to filter information.
A few years ago for my thesis, I was interested in the implementation of engines to filter information - using Lisp language.
I have just ordered again this book (lost in my many relocations) and I should receive it soon.
Indeed, I intend to take one week of vacation to code! and I envisaged to produce a generic engine to filter information - engine written in Python.
Soon or later, this engine will be used in the iTrade project to extract financial information from websites ; but I intend also to comment on and to develop this library to improve the effectiveness of Python when it is a question of extracting and managing information.
I wish to show that the power of expression of a filter makes it possible to appreciably reduce the size of the code necessary to extract information and that it is possible in Python.
Not to waste time for the logistic of this new project, I will park this work under a sub folder of the iTrade project. I would give more information later on when the coding session starts.
NB: for the name of the project, I imagine something around “Paragon”.
As in a good fable, the electoral promises respected or not, always finish by a moral.
We arrive soon at this moral : it is not enough to launch simplistic slogans and ideas (i.e to work more to gain more), or to exploit the credulity of the voters using noisy media campaigns, to regulate the problems.
The economic and social situation in France is in sorry state. It is necessary to be serious to face this reality.
Our hyper president Sarkozy will not be able any more to make us believe that it acts because it is shown on TV.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
