     [Update #1 - possibility to upload lyrics to the database!] -------------------------- Lyrdb Lookup is a sample project using clsLyrdb, a VB6 class encapsulating all LYRDB functionality to retrieve lyrics automatically without having to parse full HTML pages of content. I've recently created, a different lyrics portal: it has over 1.500.000 lyrics (wow!) and it offers free web services to access this huge resource of lyrics programatically. For this purpose, I have created a self-contained class that connects via Internet to LYRDB (with proxy support) and allows you to search for lyrics programatically with simple calls. Then, you can iterate over the results to show them and you can retrieve all the lyrics you want, passing a lyrics identifier (provided along with search results). The class is very easy to use and does not have any dependence. This project is an example of how to use this class. Please vote for this project and send feedback! If you think I could improve both the class and the web services, please comment it or mail to me (!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
