Ernie's EveryAuction Perl Community Software
Your New local Online Community Platform!
Free Access to Ernie's basic EveryAuction Scripts and to the EA Add-On Database for Everybody! Server-based Assistance and Updatings for donating Customers. Whoever has great Ideas how to further enhance EveryAuction, is warmly welcome!
EveryAuction 1.53 will be the best, fasted and technically cleanest EA Source-based (easy to handle) Flatfile DB Software ever seen on the Planet! EveryAuction v1.53 will be compatible, or then easy adoptable, to most existing EA 1.5x based Scriptings & Mods
EveryAuction v.1.53 uses the FastEA Flatfile Database Index System, consisting of simple, fast, and easy to handle Index-Files.
EveryAuction v.1.53 uses no timeconsuming 'JUST FOR FUN' Gimmicks. It's Content - easy to handle clean embedded HTML Code, understandable Perl Code, Indexing - enables Ernie' new EveryAuction v.1.53 Community + Commerce Platform Software to handle huge Amounts of traffic. In Addition to this, Site-Owners can easy add additional Scripts of all kinds to the Platform without the need to adapt and/or (re)write big parts or sections.
Why not a MySql DB ?? Would You trust ONE SQL-DB to securely handle and keep ALL Data related to your new, growing, but not yet fully designed and dummie-tested ComCom-Site, after dreaming and working so long and hard to get it on the Web-Road to Success !? Even more, after all those nights of learning, you still have little or no familiar feelings to the 'Sql' thing itself...!?
Sorry, I wouldn't. You only have one Chance to convince your first time Visitors to come back again. Don't spoil it! You can always move up to a dedicated Server, if your Site Counter surpasses 9'999 Member 'Actions' a Day....
Sql-DB's seem to be a very vulnerable place to keep Data. Content is beeing stolen, infected, reflected, deflected, rejected (Arlo Guthrie), modified and destroyed, every Hour, every Day. MySQL-Admin? One Click at the wrong Place, and everything, just everything could be History...! Happen to my a short while ago, this is, why I know.
Certainly, when editing Perl Files, one must be aware of a few Basic Rules. When enhancing Scripts, adding Stuff, e.t.c, one can SCREW UP anywhere. But doing such with the EA Flatfile DB, the Software itself will not stop entire operation or present mismatching Content-Results. Attacking a Standard (EA 1.5x type) Flatfile DB, just One single Member- or Item- File could eventually be damaged or destroyed because of whatever, unknown, Reason, but not the entire 'Battery' of the Site.
This specific (User or Item) File then would, if not deleted by the System itself, eventually be removed, downloaded and even fixed easy by regular FTP-Connect.
All this usually without disrupting ongoing Site Activity or Function in any way! This is, what I call, 'the (old) Swiss Way of securing important Things'. Or at least, as it used to be - yesterday, when I was young....
Perl - Why do we use it? Perl (Practical Extraction and Reporting Language) was designed as a 'Text-processing' Language for use in administering Computer Systems. Because of it's strength in Searching and Sorting Text Files, Perl is a Natural to be used for EveryAuction or similar Type CGI Server Applications.
Perl is an "interpreted" Language. A Perl Program is just a Text File, it's Content is processed by the Perl Interpreter at run-time. Perl is not a 'compiled' Language like C++. This makes it a little slower than 'compiled' Languages, but it allows individual programming techniques and easy modification with any standard Text Editor. And..., if you 'can' PHP, then Perl is just one step away!
Why am I doing this for free? During a rather 'shady' Period, scripting with EveryAuction Software has been a big Aid, adding
Freedom, (Forum-) Diversity and much 'needed' Motivation to my personal Life. Because of this, I feel that EveryAuction Style Perl Coding shall not vanish, who knows, others may find themselfs in similar Situations,
also looking for something to help them 'suppress' the daily 'Garbage', at least, once in a while.
So, why not try something new!? Start Your own Local/Regional Community/Commerce Site! It does not cost you anything to start, and your Webmaster Future Success depends just ON YOU ONLY!
My EveryAuction 1.53 is beeing created to be the ideal Code-Pack for 'eager to do it' Newbie Site Programmers to start Webmaster Knowledge as well as a real chance for long time Success!!
My Goal: A Free basic Site Software, based on EveryAuction 1.5x Source, DB-enhanced & ready to serve tomorrow's Requirements!
