How Google's Search Algorithm works

How Google's Search Algorithm works:

The story of Google’s algorithm begins with PageRank, the system invented in 1997 by cofounder Larry Page while he was a grad student at Stanford. Page’s now legendary insight was to rate pages based on the number and importance of links that pointed to them — to use the collective intelligence of the Web itself to determine which sites were most relevant. It was a simple and powerful concept, and — as Google quickly became the most successful search engine on the Web — Page and cofounder Sergey Brin credited PageRank as their company’s fundamental innovation.

Google Websearch Process:

Web search is a multipart process:

First, Google crawls the Web to collect the contents of every accessible site. This data is broken down into an index (organized by word, just like the index of a textbook), a way of finding any page based on its content. Every time a user types a query, the index is combed for relevant pages, returning a list that commonly numbers in the hundreds of thousands, or millions. The trickiest part, though, is the ranking process — determining which of those pages belong at the top of the list.

Google’s massive computing power and bandwidth give the company an undeniable edge. Some observers say it’s an advantage that essentially prohibits startups from trying to compete. But Manber says it’s not infrastructure alone that makes Google the leader: “The very, very, very key ingredient in all of this is that we hired the right people.”

Handling Errors in Actionscript 3 | Flash CS5 try catch in Flash Player

Flash Player 8.5 supports a try/catch methodology for handling errors in ActionScript. That means you can write code that can intelligently deal with certain error types should they occur. While you cannot handle syntax errors (the .swf won't even compile in that case), you can handle most other error types, such as missing or invalid data. The benefit is that you can attempt to resolve the situation programmatically.

Use a throw statement to throw an error when it is detected. Place any potentially error-generating code within a try block, and then have one or more corresponding catch blocks to handle possible errors.

An example situation:

Suppose we are creating an email application in flash actionscript 3.0 using smtp. We have

  1. To
  2. Subject
  3. messase box

We need the above three as input from user, the first input "To" to whom we are going to mail is mandatory list. so if user forgot to type any mail id or if the typed mail id is not valid then we need to throw an error and exception, must handle error in actionscript.

There are two basic parts involved in working with errors in ActionScript: throwing the error and catching the error. There are several errors, which are thrown automatically by the player, such as IllegalOperationError, MemoryError, and ScriptTimeoutError.
