if you put dots in your name (like R.o.l.u) you can make it blue, because
the program thinks it's an url. We're having fun with it at awgate at the
moment, but I think it's not really ok :-) It works that way with normal
text too, great way to stand out :-)

R.o.l.u

The best way to solve that is to not let people have dots in their names?

Better way: don't assume that names can be URL's :-)

Yeah, Roland, make it check for ".com", ".org", ".net", etc.

Well, AW3.1 doesn't check the names for URLs, anyway... Not all URLs have those strings in them (or if they do it would take a while to parse them out of the string) anyway.

It would? mIRC can parse (and catch and save) URLs and email addresses with no problem. Perhaps Roland just simply needs to become more adept at programming.

Does mIRC require the protocol prefix to recognize URIs? That would be
easy to implement I think.

Or does it resolve the IP from names that could be an URL and mark only
the valid ones? If it does that it would become a problem as the browser
had to constantly resolve adresses, visiting crowded areas like AWGate
would not be a good idea then.

Implementing it "guess-based" is not a good idea, especially at the
moment as long as not all new top level domains are decided.

[View Quote] Just make it easy to add new top level domains and there's no problem at
all. If you do it well, it should be a matter of seconds to add a bunch of
new TLD's to the URL recognize code. And if it would only recognize stuff
with at least one dot in it, ending on some TLD (and only in normal text,
not in names) it would recognize URL's better, too.

Trying to resolve IP's is a very bad idea as this can take several seconds,
especially if the URL doesn't exist. This would give a lot of unnecessary
lag.

Uhh... AW's "URL Parser" just looks for three periods separated by some alphanumeric character, I think :)

a.b.c gets turned into a URL...

[View Quote] Three alphanumeric non-empty strings with two dots inbetween, surrounded by
spaces. I know. What's your point?

People are whining about TLDs not being recognised. It doesn't work based on TLDs, so what is the problem? The only real problem is that it changes names into links also...

I'd rather have it find more links that aren't valid, than not find a real one

[View Quote] My remark about TLD recognition was about an alternative to the current URL
recognition.

> I'd rather have it find more links that aren't valid, than not find a real
one

If you think so, then go for the TLD recognition. There are URL's that have
only one dot in them.

And what *real* URL's do you think won't be recognized by TLD recognition,
but will be recognized by the currend bla.bla.bla recognition?

Rolu, you did not read what I wrote - I asked how mIRC does it, it
wasn't a recommendation for the AW browser

[View Quote] You were talking about "how does mIRC do it" and "how can that apply to the
AWbrowser".

Some quotes:

"Does mIRC require the protocol prefix to recognize URIs? **That would be
easy to implement I think.**"

"Or does it resolve the IP from names that could be an URL and mark only
the valid ones? **If it does that it would become a problem as the browser
had to constantly resolve adresses**, **visiting crowded areas like AWGate**
would not be a good idea then."

You were clearly talking about the AWbrowser.

I then gave my opinion about how it should be done, also considering your
idea's.

You said:

"Implementing it "guess-based" is not a good idea, especially at the
moment as long as not all new top level domains are decided."

My answer:

"Just make it easy to add new top level domains and there's no problem at
all. If you do it well, it should be a matter of seconds to add a bunch of
new TLD's to the URL recognize code."

And another recommendation:

"And if it would only recognize stuff
with at least one dot in it, ending on some TLD (and only in normal text,
not in names) it would recognize URL's better, too."

And finally my answer to your IP resolving question:

"Trying to resolve IP's is a very bad idea as this can take several seconds,
especially if the URL doesn't exist. This would give a lot of unnecessary
lag."

"Rolu, you did not read what I wrote "

apparently you didn't even read it yourself?

Sorry, you're right. Reading it again, my posting does not properly
express what I wanted to say.

My original thought was

"How does mIRC do it" and "That might not apply to the AWbrowser".

please accept my apology
