[EP-tech] Re: IRStats2. Browsers and Countries



The code you want is here:

https://github.com/eprints/irstats2/blob/master/cfg/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/Stats/Processor/Access/Browsers.pm#L12

...which probably should exist in a configuration file for just this reason.

The problem is that the Chrome line includes the word 'Safari' -- I'm not sure what the best practice to fix this is.  It's quite possible that the problem is broader than you suspect, so fixing it would make it wrong in different ways.

Part of the problem is also that we're iterating through the keys of a hash, and they order they come out in is undefined, so we can't be sure which browser will get the priority.

We should probably be using a library for this -- something like http://search.cpan.org/dist/Parse-HTTP-UserAgent/lib/Parse/HTTP/UserAgent.pm
