Mailinglist archive

Hi!

Is there a possibility to download the whole mailinglist archive, so I can
search it locally?
I was able to find anything on the website…

I don’t think there is any, sorry. Use recursive wget, or perhaps wget
in a loop (they are numbered sequentially in the archive).

(I’m glad to hear that there are people who actually do research before
asking old questions again. Let’s hope more people follow your example!)

If you do it, can you put up compressed archives (in monthly chunks, say)
for download somewhere? It’s almost 14000 messages so you may want to
keep only the last year or so if you are short on disk space.
Also see if you can un-HTML them before storing

Search it with Google! Google supports a parameter called ‘site:’.
Use it like so, for example to search for “ARGB alpha blit”:

sigh, ok it’s scripting time again… Shouldn’t be too difficult. I just
thought I’m finished with these small but important things (spent a lot of
time on various small python proggies for our home-LAN, taking more time than
expected) and I could move on working on the real things;)

I will shout when I’m ready!

Download is in progress… It’s running now for ~2 hours and 20% complete :wink:
When it’s finished I will place the files (one for each month as .txt.gz) on
my site. The URL will be:
http://www.odahoda.de/avop/sdlml.html

Sam: If you like, you can place a link to this page on the mailinglists page.

I seems liek a pretty round about method. The mailing list is more than
likely stored in a plain text format somewhere on the server. Wait for
sam to come back and sort it out then.On Mon, May 21, 2001 at 03:05:03PM +0200, Benjamin Niemann wrote:

SDL is so amazing, someone does (will) even send mails from the future!!
Does this mean, that the mailinglist server will be down during March 2003,
so the sender will be forced to sent mails back in time, reading the answer
in the archive before he even pushed the ‘send’ button???On Thursday 07 June 2001 23:20, you wrote:

Is it just me, or is there an archive there from March 2003?

Hi Sam,

I think my mails regarding the SDL mailing list archive got lost during
your honeymoon :wink:

Is there a possibility to download the whole mailinglist archive, so I
can search it locally?
I wasn’t able to find anything on the website…

As suggested by Mattias, I downloaded all entiries from the web, stripped
HTML and packed it up to some handy files, one for each month. I could
update them every week or so. They are available at:
http://www.odahoda.de/avop/sdlml.html
If you like, you can place a link to this on the mailinglists page.

OR is there a better alternative?

bye
