Importing of any Links 1.x or 2.x links is included in the setup. We do charge an extra $100 to setup mysql for you and will need root access.

If you'd like to go ahead, simply go to:


and place an order.

We have run into some problems with foreign languages. Links SQL uses an indexing scheme to have really quick searches, rather then relying on the database to do a full table scan. The downside, is Links SQL needs to be able to, given a sentance, figure out what the words are. With most english languages, this is easy, we just split it on spaces.

However, many oriental languages are more difficult as there are no spaces, and sometimes words are 1, 2, 3, or 4 symbols long. We are looking at parsers, but they would be language specific. Also, we are creating a full table scan search.cgi which should work in all cases, but will be slower for very large databsaes.

If anyone has any experience parsing Big5 or GB, please drop me a line. =)
