DESCRIPTION

        IGNORE KEYWORDS
 
        When determining which parts of a particular web page has changed, you
        may want to skip those paragraphs that contains certain predefined
        words. For example, pages like InfoWorld, PC Magazine and PC Week often
        contain the current date/time regardless of whether there is new or
        changed content. In such cases, you can use IGNORE KEYWORDS to skip
        those paragraphs which contains date/time information.
 
        Ignore keywords are stored in a file called "ignore.list" in the same
        directory as websec. Like the URL list, the ignore keywords are partiā€
        tioned into different sections. Each section has a user-defined name.
        An example is shown below:
 
                [General]
                all rights reserved
                an error occurred

                [Date_Time]
                January\s+\d{1,2}
                February\s+\d{1,2}
                March\s+\d{1,2}
                April\s+\d{1,2}
                May\s+\d{1,2}
 
        In the example above, there are two sections: "General" and
        "Date_Time".  You can use them in the URL list as follows:
 
            Ignore = General
 
        You can also use multiple sections at one go:
 
            Ignore = General,Date_Time
 
        If you use certain ignore keywords regularly, you might want to add
        them to a defaults section in the URL list.
 
        Ignore keywords can contain regular expressions. For example, the
        ignore keyword "January\s+\d{1,2}" tells websec to look for the string
        "January", followed by one or more spaces, followed by at least one but
        not more than two digits.
 
        Two sections of ignore keywords are supplied in this distribution.
        "General" contains some general ignore keywords which you may want to
        use. "Date_Time" contains date/time detectors coded using regular
        expressions. Feel free to add your own!
 
        IGNORE URLS
 
        Most advertisements in webpages are of the following form:
 
                <A HREF="http://page.url.com/advert/cgi-bin/" ...>
                <IMG SRC="advert.animated.gif" ...>
                Click here for free beer!
                </A>
 
        Such advertisements can be ignored when running webdiff using ignore
        URLs.
 
        Ignore URLs are also stored in "ignore.list". They contain all of parts
        of the URL referred to by the <A HREF> tag which you want to ignore. An
        example is shown below:
 
                [Adverts]
                page.url.com/advert/cgi-bin/
 
        Use the "Adverts" section in the URL list as follows:
 
            IgnoreURL = Adverts
 
        You can also use multiple sections at one go:
 
            IgnoreURL = Adverts1,Adverts2
 
        If you use certain ignore URLs regularly, you might want to add them to
        a defaults section in the URL list.
 
        Like ignore keywords, ignore URLs can contain regular expressions.
 
        An "Adverts" section is supplied in this distribution. Feel free to add
        your own!
