Dear Richard Managh,
Thanking you for your reply and help. My agrovoc database format is in mysql format. Mainly I would like to use it with Phind phrase browsing for searching. I had installed WAMP (Windows - Apache - MySQL- PHP5) in my c drive and constructed the thesaurus taking agrovac from FAO. I have opened <GSDLHOME>/etc/packages/example.dbi. But I am not clear what next I have to do. Kindly help

How exactly do you want to integrate the thesaurus into your greenstone collection? Do you want it to be a resource to aid the user in choosing search terms? Or do you want it simply browseable in your collection?
I am in badly need of your help to complete my project. I have constructed a thesaurus in agrovoc format which I would like to integrate to my green stone collection.
I posted Mail in Greenstone mailing lists earlier. But, did not get satisfactory response. I also went through Tutorial, but, could not find out solution of my
problem. Under such circumstances, I have been forced to request you all again to help me to solve my problem.
If your thesaurus is in a relational database format, you could try using DBPlug as a starting point to importing it into your collection. According to the DBPlug file:
# A plugin that imports records from a database. This uses perl's DBI module,
# which includes back-ends for mysql, postgresql, comma separated values (CSV),
# MS Excel, ODBC, sybase, etc... Extra modules may need to be installed to
# use this. See <GSDLHOME>/etc/packages/example.dbi for an example config file.
I looked at the agrovoc database
on the www.fao.org site and they appear to make it available in a number of formats, i.e. mysql, postgres, iso2709 etc.
What format is your agrovoc database in? perhaps DBPlug with some configuration could be used to import it?
