 WebLog 0.98 available (logfile analysis toolkit)

Version 0.98 of the WebLog modules for the python programming language is
now available.

The WebLog modules are free for any use, as long as copyright is
maintained.  For more information, or to download them, see

http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~mnot/script/python/WebLog/

Any suggestions (including more formats!), bugs or comments should go to

Changes in version 0.98:
- added MultipleWebLog module  (combine many concurrent logfiles
- added WebLogQueryParse module (parse url and referer query)
- added example script to tail a file
- added num_skipped attribute to WebLogLimit classes
- made WebLogLimit's test() more explicit
- made SquidCacheLog's error catching more thorough
- revised WebLogClean to catch all % escaped sequences
- moved host lower()ing to WebLogUrlParse
- general cleanup

The WebLog modules allow you to write logfile analysis scripts that can be
as simple or complex as you like. They currently can parse the following

* Common logfile format
* Combined logfile format
* Squid Proxy logfile format

There are also several postprocessing logfile modules;

* client hostname/ip address resolution
* logfile cleaning/normalisation
* limit output by start/end time, page, directory or filetype requested,
and requesting host or domain
* determine type of referer (offsite, local, file or manual)
* url parsing into its basic components
* query parsing into its elements

also included are several examples;

* a script to identify unauthorised attempts to access protected documents
* a script to show a breakdown of referers by page requested
* a script to show terms entered into common search engines to reach a site
* a script to show traffic through a Squid proxy by client and site requested
* a script to tail a logfile
