Having problem adding new robot to robots.pm

    In my stats I see hits from:


    (it's websense)

    I'd like to add that as a robot.

    In my robots.pm I tried adding:

    @RobotsSearchIDOrder_list2 = (

    and adding:

    %RobotsHashIDLib = (
    'as[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9].com', 'Websense',

    Now, I added those pretty low in the two lists, so maybe I just need to raise them, does the pattern matching make sense here? To me the docs are "weird" in that the "key" seems to be a pattern also (?).

    Just need some assurance that I'm going in the right direction.

    I think that's the right direction, and that there is no problem if the "key" is a pattern, but: Where did you get "static-208-80-194-138.as13448.com" from? This has to be a part of the user agent string, as (according to my knowledge) AWStats applies the rules contained in robots.pm to the user agent string only.

    Really, from the user agent string? Interesting. I'll look into that, thanks!
