Thanks. :-) > I wanted to play with the IMDB UNIX search programs, that can be found here: > http://www.imdb.com/interfaces Wow! They are a little... demodé. :-) I don't really expect them to work on a recent set of data: since some time all the titles in the plain text data files are listed in the "The Title" format, while previously they were "Title, The". We supported the output of moviedb up to IMDbPY 4.1, after that the changes were so many that it was no more worth the effort (and the 'sql' method works much better). > I was able to compile the programs, but I couldn't create the databases. > Lots of .list files failed to convert to .data/.names/.titles files with > error codes like these: > > /usr/local/moviedb-3.24/etc/mkdb -movie > Adding Movies List... > make: *** [movies.data] Bus error Here's the most important excerpt from my old README.local: ==================================================== NOTE: the current (3.24) moviedb version is old an it was not thought with tv series episodes support in mind. It can still work very well, but you've to modify some constants in the code: edit the "moviedb.h" file in the "src" directory, and change MAXTITLES to _at least_ 1600000, MAXNAKAENTRIES to 700000, MAXFILMOGRAPHIES to 20470, LINKSTART to 1000000 and MAXBIOENTRIES to 500000. Also, setting MXLINELEN to 1023 is a good idea.
