A1 Website download exclude pages
« on: July 09, 2017, 06:47:12 AM »
I am trying to exclude web pages based on their names beginning with the characters MS_
The pages are downloaded in different directories, each page name beginning with MS_ and html extension. How do I exclude these pages from both analysis and output?

Exemple :
dir1/MS_987.html should be excluded
dir2/MS_48732.html should be excluded
dir1/boxes.html should be included

Please see:

Sounds like those files (MS_ + .HTML)  are those created when two different URLs will map to the same file name on disk (this is because file names on disk do now allow the same characters as URLs do)

I have contemplated a different way - but a problem I encountered with huge websites was that if I just removed illegal characters or similar "simple" method - I would receive examples of where URLs would collide when saved to disk.
