RISC OS links databases in revampBy Chris Williams. Published: 22nd Aug 2004, 22:49:20 | Permalink | Printable
Keep those broken links away from meThe ANS Filebase and RISC OS Links websites have updated this month, improving on their previous designs and including new features. The ANS Filebase concentrates on links to software, while the RISC OS Links database covers everything from user groups to documentation.
According to the ANS Filebase team, they now have a system to catch 'broken links' (links to other websites that have died or closed down, the bane of all online links databases), which informs authors if their entries become out of date. There's also a new author list and RSS feeds for new and updated software.
Meanwhile, over at riscos.org, maintainer Paul Vigay says he's re-written the database engine to make it faster and more efficient.
