Subject Re: [IBO] Helen, can you upload the source of IBO infobase?

If you are looking for a way to extract all messages from the group archive, I have something that could help you. It goes through the list and extract the message from the HTML page.
I haven't quite got to do the app but a stater is there, would be a breeze to store the data in a DB.

What's it? where can I find it?
(If it's that at:
it's free for non commercial use, so you can release your code and anyone interested can download it).

Oh, it would be *very* usefull indeed! In the file section I've uploaded a program that, with a database from another IBO user, let you search a list archive. I use it often, since for me internet connection is not so available. So you would do a great thing with a local FAQ (also producing a database with this list messages... sorry, I don't know how to do it by myself... I could rewrite the front-end, if you want...)

Uhm... sounds good for a new IB_ component to add to the palette ;)
