OK. I'll bite Puppy. What about source code? Please ask again!

 

 

 

....Why yes, you should always check it out when solving hard puzzles ;)

Not sure what happened here. Anyway, I was looking for the source code for coord checkers I've been thinking about having them on a seperate website. I can't find anything on Google...

I'm not sure I understand your question.

 

Are you wanting to add a coordinate checker to one of your cache pages?

 

http://evince.locusprime.net/

http://www.geochecker.com/

http://geocheck.org/

 

You enter your GCID and correct coordinates, then they will give you the source to add to your cache page.

 

Geocheck requires you sign up, Evince and Geochecker are completely anonymous.

I know how to put the links on cachepages. What I'm looking for is source code, as in the HTML for them.

You will get the exact source code you should add as a response from any of the coordinate checker services when you create your coordinate checker.

If you're looking for the HTML that produces that page all you need do is right-click on the page then select "View Source".

 

However, that's just going to show the HTML used to render the page. HTML is not "source code" in the traditional sense. It's a markup language, not a programming language. All of the coordinate checkers mentioned, including geohecker are web applications written using some other programming language such as PHP, Java, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion, or Perl..,that's not an exhaustive list). It's the Java/PHP/Perl etc code that produces the HTML that your browser knows how to render. It' might produce some javascript as well. Each of these web applications has some sort of datastore on the backend (most likely a MySQL database) some sort of business logic in the middle and a user interface for interacting with the web application.

 

Whether or not the developer of a web application, or any program for that matter, choose to make the actual source code available is up to the developer. Some make it freely available as "open source". If that's the case you can freely down load everything you need and set it up on your own server. If the developer, as is the case in most software that is sold, the source code is *not* available, sometimes not even for a price.

 

It's also worth noting that pretty much all software has some sort of copyright which specifies what you as a user of that software can and can not do with it. If you were able to find the source code for one of these coordinate checkers without the creators permission and created your own version you may have a date with a lawyer in the near future.

I don't think you're being very clear what source code you're looking for.

 

1) are you trying to add a coodinate checker to one of your puzzle caches?

 

2) are you trying to set up your own coordinate checker website?

 

Which are you trying to do?

[ + ] Usage for Cache Owner If you are a puzzle cache owner, and you would like to use this site to let solvers check their solutions, it's very easy. Simply enter the cache name, waypoint, and GPS coordinates to be checked in the boxes below and submit the data. The next page will present you with the HTML code for a hyperlink to be inserted into the cache description. It's important to use the complete link for the checker to work properly. It's also a good idea to make sure that the link works properly and that the correct coordinates return a positive result. (This tool assumes coordinates are in the typical WGS84 datum used by Geocaching.com.) As the cache owner, you will be able to track how many solutions are attempted - both good and bad. This is a great way to make sure your puzzle is not proving too easy or too hard.

No. He doesn't need to know how to copy and paste text using a computer. My son knew how to do that when he was 4. He wants the actual source code, as written by the author of one of the coordinate checker websites. At least I think that's what he wants. :lol:

Well, from the two posts I quote above, he seems to be asking for the HTML. However, that doesn't really make sense either.

 

Maybe he thinks that the whole coordinate checker is implemented using HTML. It's not. You can write a really simple one using almost any programming language, or you can write a more complicated one using a programming language and a database backend. Either way, you need code to run on the server end.

 

You can always do client side code using Javascript, but anyone who can view page source will be able to read your coordinates.
