Can you provide a link to the generated html page thsi creates so we could
check out your work, it sounds interesting.
> I have put together a PERL program called MyLinks that runs from the command
> line (at this time) and allows you to paste in a URI, then the site name and
> then a "topic" entry which can have a number of key words in it.
> It generates a "|" separated data file of these things and also a html page
> that you can open in your browser. On the html page the links are live and
> the sites in a new window or tab (depending on how you have the browser set).
> Each time it is run it adds your new sites to the datafile and regenerates the
> html page.
> The datafile is easily editable in a text editor.
> Why bother with this when the browser has book marks?
> (1) I have found that when you get enough things in the bookmarks it becomes
> hard to both find sites and also to save things to appropriate folders.
> With MyLinks.html you just do a search on your topic key words or on the words
> in the site name.
> (2) if you want to make a links page for your site then you can quickly
> assemble a basic set of links with description.
> You need PERL installed on your system to use MyLinks.pl but it should
> otherwise be crossplatform. (Linux, Amiga,Mac OSX, DOS, Windoze)
