I have recently been looking at various social lending websites. The idea is that individual lenders lend money to individual borrowers via the social lending website, rather than via the banks. The result is that the lender receive a higher rate of return while the borrower pays a lower rate of interest.
Have just spent the last couple of days trying to process a spreadsheet file created in openoffice using perl. The problem I had was deciding which CPAN module to use. A choice of one which did everything I wanted would have been ideal. Unfortunately I had the overwhelming choice of hundreds.
I finally settled for ODF::lpOD
Thanks to the following pages that pointed me in the right direction:
Busy updating websites so they work in PHP 5.3
a somewhat boring task:
change each MySQL login password so it is stored in the new format
and update any depreciated code:
replace split with preg_split
replace ereg with preg_match
and wait for them to come to term!
Or postpone the problem till PHP 6 by ignoring all depreciated warnings:
error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED);
and do the job properly later…
