Ok im taking a class on information retrieval and its pretty much about different methods of retrieving information from documents, files, the web etc. Pretty much doing google type searches.
Now for a final project I have to implement some of the stuff I learned and I need to figure out what language/platform I am using.
Now im going to try and make a program that searches and indexes the files on your computer, pretty much the same as the search button on the start menu.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what language I should use, I have to have a GUI too doesnt have to be fancy or anything. My language experience is C++, C, Java, and PHP.
I have Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2003 .NET so i can do everything that program covers pretty easily, otherwise I would have to download a compiler do cover whatever else im doing.
So any suggestions?
