As a matter of fact, yes I do. And what's worse ;) it's definitely language-related. I wish to treat language text as a program, and a text editor consequently as an interpreter. Feeding the "compiled" text into a database for storage as the server component; I also wish to correlate it with a spoken-(listening/speaking)-language component. As far as the database back-end goes, it would appear to be related to the Logic Database idea - depending on your Prof, this may overjoy or deeply depress him/her. I have never heard of anyone seeing any components of this in this context, so it quite conceivably is something completely new - but then again, I expect I'm exceedingly ignorant, to crib a phrase from Ursula Le Guin. I would appreciate it if you could release the software you create under the LGPL so I could make use of it myself ... ;) other than that, enjoy yourself if so you desire. Wesley Parish
