/* This file implements the Robot Exclusion Standard (RES).

   RES is a simple protocol that enables site admins to signalize to
   the web crawlers that certain parts of the site should not be
   accessed.  All the admin needs to do is create a "robots.txt" file
   in the web server root, and use simple commands to allow or
   disallow access to certain parts of the site.

   The first specification was written by Martijn Koster in 1994, and
   is still available at <http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/norobots.html>.
   In 1996, Martijn wrote an Internet Draft specifying an improved RES
   specification; however, that work was apparently abandoned since
   the draft has expired in 1997 and hasn't been replaced since.  The
   draft is available at

   This file implements RES as specified by the draft.  Note that this
   only handles the "robots.txt" support.  The META tag that controls
   whether the links should be followed is handled in `html-url.c'.

   Known deviations:

   * The end-of-line comment recognition is more in the spirit of the
     Bourne Shell (as specified by RES-1994).  That means that
     "foo#bar" is taken literally, whereas "foo #bar" is interpreted
     as "foo".  The Draft apparently specifies that both should be
     interpreted as "foo".

   * We don't recognize sole CR as the line ending.

   * We don't implement expiry mechanism for /robots.txt specs.  I
     consider it non-necessary for a relatively short-lived
     application such as Wget.  Besides, it is highly questionable
     whether anyone deploys the recommended expiry scheme for

   Entry points are functions res_parse, res_parse_from_file,
   res_match_path, res_register_specs, res_get_specs, and
   res_retrieve_file.  */

/* Parse textual RES specs beginning with SOURCE of length LENGTH.
   Return a specs objects ready to be fed to res_match_path.

   The parsing itself is trivial, but creating a correct SPECS object
   is trickier than it seems, because RES is surprisingly byzantine if
   you attempt to implement it correctly.

   A "record" is a block of one or more `User-Agent' lines followed by
   one or more `Allow' or `Disallow' lines.  Record is accepted by
   Wget if one of the `User-Agent' lines was "wget", or if the user
   agent line was "*".

   After all the lines have been read, we examine whether an exact
   ("wget") user-agent field was specified.  If so, we delete all the
   lines read under "User-Agent: *" blocks because we have our own
   Wget-specific blocks.  This enables the admin to say:

       User-Agent: *
       Disallow: /

       User-Agent: google
       User-Agent: wget
       Disallow: /cgi-bin

   This means that to Wget and to Google, /cgi-bin is disallowed,
   whereas for all other crawlers, everything is disallowed.
   res_parse is implemented so that the order of records doesn't
   matter.  In the case above, the "User-Agent: *" could have come
   after the other one.  */
