Ming Database

There is a ming database called "ming" with a table called "mingdict" which can be used to translate GW's stuff. My intent is to provide a page that :
  1. you type in the ming sentence or phrase in one box
  2. the english word or phrase for each word in the ming comes out in same sequence in another box below the first
  3. for each word in the ming phrase a 2 collum table appears below #2 which has the ming word and the poetic absey-yao of the ming word - this helps in determining alternate english words that might make the translation more understandable.
Any suggestions for a model to hack this out from the would be appreciated.

OK, so I have a layout at uri http://icybermind.net/mingdict.html now what.  Need an example or can you figure out where the input/output goes ?

Anyway an example of what I want to come out is at uri http://icybermind.net/mingdictex.html  (Whether it makes any sense or not) - obviously the context is personal to the reader. It is from uri http://cfrussell.homestead.com/
After reading the verses I suspect that the sentence fragment means something like your seed produces similar human (or your children are similar to you).

i would make the sql database ... columns look just like your table: mine,english,absey
Did you see the database table I already made?  They are pretty much the same - do they need altering?

Your db looks good to me.   Next i would put the input data inside a form element that submits back to the same page like this ...


Then you will be ready to write the PHP code.  Note that your will reciece your data 
in the variable $mingIn. You can easily split that up into individual words in an array
with:

$words=explode(' ',$mingIn);

You could process each word with some kind of loop like:

foreach ($words as $value) {
... format your outputs from your db translations of $value
}

Have fun ...

While this is not in it's final form it does work.  Read the translation vertically in the English column. If a word is not found it is ignored. If there are two entries like the word SUP then it supplies both.  Otherwise it is a lot faster to translate a sentence by just typing it into the box.  Will pretty it up later when I get a round  anyway .

BTW, the url is uri http://icybermind.net/mingdict1.html

BTW, It also ignores words which are not in the dictionary. So if you are prone to mispell ming or are bad at typing it is recommended that you use ctrl-V on the ming input box & save the input before pushing the translate button because the input box empties.
