Hey Barry (and all)

I have been fiddling with Quisp and SHSQL, and have almost completed my first dynamic website purely with Puppy. I think that Quisp and SHSQL have a few niggles, but am still thinking about writing a frontend for SHSQL, if people think there would be value in that Question Question . My aim is to make it something similar to mysqlcc. I'm in the preliminary stages of thinking about the problem, but since shsql is far less complicated than mysql, there may be a possibility of making a html-based interface. Let me know what you think.

Sorry, John, which code are you enquiring about?

Generally:

Quisp cgi code is very simple to learn and use. Has all the basic flow of control mechanisms, can interface with SHSQL and the shell.

SHSQL is a basic SQL database that uses directly-editable text files (although, to avoid database update problems, you wouldn't normally edit the files. SHSQL provides record locking when making updates/queries, which is preferrable, obviously). I don't think it supports nested sql queries, but there are always joins... I've found the "where" command to be a bit finnicky.

As for my website, it is pretty simple. I'm writing a content-management system for the end users, which will use a html interface. I haven't put a lot of thought into how to code a frontend to SHSQL, as I thought it would be a good idea to guage interest first.

Cheers

I do not even understand what you are doing and I am interested.

My personal interest is in on line free databases such as this one I created

http://baseportal.com/baseportal/Tmxxine/main

I would also suggest that if it is fun - have a go and well you know . . .

thoughtjourney,
Are you the person who posted awhile ago about a problem displaying images in Quisp pages?
If so, did you solve it?

Barry,

yep, that was me. I contacted the developer, Steve Grubb. He basically said that the version of quisp/shsql that we have is the same as the version he uses on sourceforge... so it should work. I have checked my setup, and it is as he has specified in the instructions, so I'm still a bit baffled. For my use, images weren't exactly mission-critical, so I put that investigation on hold Embarassed

I think I checked these out about a year ago... I agree, they are fun. I'll have to look into them again, might get some ideas. Cheers!

thoughtjourney,
maybe I compiled Quisp wrong.
You could try grabbing a binary tarball, if the author of Quisp has one, install the binaries into Pup replacing the current ones, see if that makes any difference.
