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
       partitioned into different sections. Each section has a user-defined
       name. An example is shown below:

               [General]
               all rights reserved
               an error occurred
               click here
               comments
               copyright

               [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!
