Define a word -- Java
« on: April 13, 2005, 01:24:34 pm »
I'm using this in a JavaOp2 plugin, but it's pretty good on its own, in my opinion:

Code: [Select]
import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.URL;
import java.util.Vector;

/*
 * Created on Apr 12, 2005
 * By iago
 */

public class Define
{
    /** Get the list of definitions for the word */
    public static String []define(String word) throws IOException
    {
        word = word.replaceAll(" ", "+");
       
        Vector ret = new Vector();
        String text = getPage(word);
       
        boolean stop = false;
        while(stop == false)
        {
            int ddIndex = text.indexOf("<DD>");
            int liIndex = text.indexOf("<LI>");
           
            if(liIndex >= 0 && (ddIndex >= 0 ? liIndex < ddIndex : true))
            {
                text = text.substring(liIndex + 4);
                String def = text.replaceAll("<\\/LI>.*", "");
                ret.add(def.replaceAll("<.*?>", "").trim());
                text = text.substring(text.indexOf("</LI>") + 5);
            }
            else if(ddIndex >= 0 && (liIndex >= 0 ? ddIndex < liIndex : true))
            {
                text = text.substring(ddIndex + 4);
                String def = text.replaceAll("<\\/DD>.*", "");
                ret.add(def.replaceAll("<.*?>", "").trim());
                text = text.substring(text.indexOf("</DD>") + 5);
            }
            else
            {
                stop = true;
            }
        }
       
        return (String []) ret.toArray(new String[ret.size()]);
    }
   
    private static String getPage(String word) throws IOException
    {
        HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) new URL("http", "dictionary.reference.com", 80, "/search?q=" + word).openConnection();

        conn.connect();

        if (conn.getResponseCode() != HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK)
        {
            conn.disconnect();
            throw new IOException("Unable to find the result: Server returned error " + conn.getResponseCode());
        }
       
        BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream()));

        StringBuffer fullTextBuf = new StringBuffer();
        String line;
        while((line = in.readLine()) != null)
        {
            fullTextBuf.append(line);
        }
       
        conn.disconnect();
       
        return fullTextBuf.toString();
    }
   
    public static void main(String []args) throws IOException
    {
        while(true)
        {
            System.out.print("Please enter a word to define --> ");
            String word = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)).readLine();
            String []defs = define(word);
           
            System.out.println(defs.length + " definitions found");
            for(int i = 0; i < defs.length; i++)
                System.out.println((i + 1) + ": " + defs[i]);
        }
    }
}

Here is it being used:
Quote

Apparently (from vL forum) there's a better way to do this.  But eh, this works :)

VB port.

'Get the list of definitions for the word
Function Define(Word as String) as String

    Stop = False
       
    Dim ddIndex as Integer, liIndex as Integer
    While Stop = False
        ddIndex = InStr(1, Text, "<DD>" 'int ddIndex = text.indexOf("<DD>");
        liIndex = InStr(1, Text, "<LI>" 'int liIndex = text.indexOf("<LI>");

            'Not sure how to port this. Someone wanna look into it? --> ret.add(def.replaceAll("<.*?>", "").trim());
            ret = ret & def 'Temporary implementation until correct one is made.

            'Not sure how to port this. Someone wanna look into it? --> ef = text.replaceAll("<\\/DD>.*", "");
            ef = text        'Temporary implmentation until correct one is made.

            ret = ret & def  'Temporary implementation until correct one is made.

        Else
            Stop = True
        End If
    Wend

    Define = Ret 'return (String []) ret.toArray(new String[ret.size()]);
End Function
   
Function GetPage(Word as String)
    GetPage = scInet.OpenURL("http://dictionary.com/search?q=" & word)
End Function
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

After an hour or so of juggling files arround using my own HTTP server as well as SFTP all arround North America, I finally have the source code ready for download and I have it compiled for the lazy ones.

Binary
Source

iAGO INSTALL PICO ON DARKSIDE
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

pico and nano suck balls.

That binary/source is really just a waste of iago's bandwidth.

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

pico*, vi (or vim) and emacs are all text editors for the command line in Linux.
