[REBOL] Re: comparing two URLs

From: hallvard::ystad::helpinhand::com at: 26-Oct-2003 20:20

Thanks again, everyone. Your suggestions are enlightening. This last HEAD example shows that the eTag is identical for the two pages loaded. If this is usual behavior for HTTP 1.1 servers, I think the best solution will be to 1) compare urls. If the host part does not contain "www", I will check my DB for the same host name _with_ "www" (ex. --> 2) If found, I will compare eTags. The reason I prefer not to use 'checksum is that mirrored pages on different servers should appear, in my view, on the result list, whereas the mere "www" difference should make one of two results _not_ appear within the search results. I didn't even bother checking if the eTag was identical. Thanks for showing me. Hallvard Dixit Tom Conlin <[tomc--darkwing--uoregon--edu]> (Fri, 24 Oct 2003 12:20:34 -0700 (PDT)):
