Clip to Strip Search Terms From Server Logs

February 4, 2005 on 10:50 pm | In General, Special Clips - for someone | 1 Comment

A list user had referrer logs on his server and wanted to strip the search terms from them. I wrote this:

;effort by don at htmlfixit.com
;02/04/05
; to take query terms from lines of stats
;one long example line
;http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q="We are what we know"
;becomes
;"We are what we know"
;turn off wordwrap
^!SetWordWrap Off
;^!SetDebug On
;go to start of document
^!Jump Doc_Start
;loop for cleaning lines
:Loop
;highlight just this line
^!Select Eol
^!Find "?q=" TIHS
^!IfError TryAgain ELSE KillStart

:TryAgain
;sometimes it is &q=
^!Find "&q=" TIHS
^!IfError KillLine ELSE KillStart

:KillLine
;KillLine (not a search with a ?q=)
;delete highlighted line
^!DeleteLine
;repeat til done - if done go to done subroutine
^!If ^$GetRow$ = ^$GetLinecount$ DONE ELSE Next
; next line
^!Goto Loop

:KillStart
;KillStart (get rid of ?q= and everything before it)
;jump to select end
^!Jump Select_End
;select to line beginning
^!Select Bol
;delete highlighted piece
^!Keyboard DELETE

;now get rid of post search terms by finding &
;highlight just this line
^!Select Eol
^!Find "&" TIHS
^!IfError SKIP_3
;jump to select end
^!Jump Select_Start
^!Select Eol
;delete highlighted piece
^!Keyboard DELETE

;repeat til done - if done go to done subroutine
^!If ^$GetRow$ = ^$GetLinecount$ DONE ELSE Next

;advance to next line
^!Jump +1
;repeat
^!Goto Loop

:DONE
^!Info Done

  1. I’d be glad to comment if I knew what the hell you were talking about here. All I was looking for was some software called “stripit” to clean up email ir receive, before sending copy out. Good luck with this project, what ever it is. lol
