You can, but you're not going to have fun. There's some pretty fancy Perl code in there that probably has no direct equivalent in PHP and would need to be completely rewritten. The templating code for one.

i know that not is an "automagic" translation >_<
probabily a lot of work....

No, PHPerl is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PROJECT that exists only in my mind!

PHP? Perl? There's no challenge in that. IRON CHEF LEECHMAN challenges you to Wakab in!

Sorry for the bump, but I'm trying to translate the Silly Names script to php...

$string.=",".$thread if(SILLY_ANONYMOUS=~/thread/i);
srand unpack "N",hide_data($string,4,"silly",SECRET);
return cfg_expand("%G% %W%",
W => ["%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%","%O%%E%","%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%","%O%%E%","%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%"],

Hehe, I don't even know php, but I need to use it in my current hosting situation...

The mere fact that you're trying to rewrite wakaba in php is making my head hurt.

I really recommend looking around for a better host.

13 Name: Fou-Lu!Id1gMYGA52!!UIR4DE3n : 2008-10-28 15:17 ID:j+9pHoqg [Del]

I'm not rewriting Wakaba. I hate php, but I have n other choice, I just need the name generating part of it.

Get a better host.

any news on the ColorManagement? That would be awesome ;)

just ask your host to install perl. To be honest, any host that doesn't have Perl to bein with is not worth the money.

You can do this in JavaScript,

on a related note, I just decided to have silly names in JavaScript

19 Name: Anonymous : 2008-12-08 15:26 ID:Heaven [Del]

Enjoy your broken board.
Never use javascript for functionality if you can avoid it at all (hint: you can always avoid it). Write it properly, and use javascript later on to enhance things when possible.

and to be not-a-total-jackass:

function cfg_expand($in, $grammar)
$out = explode("%", $in);
$c = count($out);
for ($n = 1; $n < $c; $n += 2) {
$x = $grammar[$out[$n]];
$out[$n] = cfg_expand($x[array_rand($x)], $grammar);
return implode("", $out);
$name = cfg_expand("%G% %W%", array(
"W" => array("%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%","%O%%E%","%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%","%O%%E%","%B%%V%%M%%I%%V%%F%","%B%%V%%M%%E%"),
"B" => array("B","B","C","D","D","F","F","G","G","H","H","M","N","P","P","S","S","W","Ch","Br","Cr","Dr","Bl","Cl","S"),

Never heard of it. From the looks of it (and after having to piss about enabling Javascript for it), it's Yet Another Redundant Social Bookmarking Site.

What's really annoying is that sort of site is essentially nothing but a list of "<a href="http://blah/">blah</a> posted by blah on blah", sometimes with pointless up and down arrows and/or a comment box which acts suspiciously like any old message board. In fact, 99% of what those sites do can be done just as well with gasp Wakaba or Kareha with a custom template. Just make it so that a subject and link are required, and turn off file uploads. The upvote/downvote can be hacked in pretty easily, just fiddle with the thread timestamps.

All that'd be missing is the utterly pointless user account ego-stroking.
