DotVoid.com:
Parsing the user agent string using PHP
January 29, 2007 @ 15:11:57

On the Dotvoid.com blog today, there's a new post that shares some handy code to parse out information from the incoming user agent string for the visitors for your site.

Recently I experimented a bit with an Apache log file analyzer written in PHP. It's not all that difficult were it not for trying to parse the browser, or user agent, string. [...] For my purposes I don't care much for the operating system details. This is the result so far. I'm still not very satisfied but I thought maybe other people might be interested and maybe help out.

He provides the code in the format of an encapsulated PHP function that returns the product they're using, the version number of the browser and other various comments.
