Rainy Amsterdam

Amsterdam is often referred to as one of the most colorful cities in the world. And rightly so where else do you find so many places of interest, famous museums, cozy pubs and flower markets.
Amsterdam is an unusual city in that it has all the advantages of a big city – culture, history, food, entertainment, good transport – with relatively few of the disadvantages: it is physically small, beautiful, relatively quiet, and largely thanks to the canals, has relatively little traffic.

I reached Amsterdam last week. Netherland is part of Schengen countries so it is possible to visit most of the Europe now.

Went to Belgium this weekend, the home town of Tintin. Here are some of the pics of my trip to Belgium this weekend.

Google on command line

In my quest for writing webservices in C, I wrote a small command line utility for collecting information from Google.

Released the first (0.1) version of Gcmd this weekend. Project home page is located at http://gcmd.sf.net. Being POSIX compliant as of now, it should work under variety of UNIX like Operating systems and Cygwin.

Following features are currently included:

  • Google command line search for a keyword.
  • Compare search results for two keywords in Google.
  • For a given URL collect the following statistics:
         i. Websites having link to this URL.
         ii. Websites similar to the given URL.
         iii.Website containing this URL in their page.
  • Spelling suggestion for a word or phrase.
  • and I am planning to add few more features.

    So download this utility from here and let me know what you think about it.
