Readme for analog3.32


Many people have helped me with analog, and I can't thank them all specifically. But I do appreciate everyone who's given me feedback or sent me bug reports.

Thanks are due to the author of getstats, Kevin Hughes. In the days before analog there were only three serious logfile analysis programs, and only one of them, getstats, had attractive output. I wrote analog when getstats stopped being able to cope with the size of our logfile, but my output still looks somewhat similar to his.

Thanks are also due to all those who helped in the early stages of writing this program, and gave me the encouragement to continue with analog and to release it publicly. Those who made helpful suggestions during beta testing are numerous, but I must mention particularly Dan Anderson, Martyn Johnson, Joe Ramey, Chris Ritson, Quentin Stafford-Fraser and Dave Stanworth. Above all Gareth McCaughan gave me lots of programming advice. The program would have run much more slowly without him.

Many people have provided mirror sites for analog, starting with Dave Stanworth (again!). The full list of mirror sites is listed elsewhere; thanks to all of them. Many thanks also to ISite for providing the mailing lists, and to The Mail Archive for archiving the analog-help list.

Mark Roedel first suggested porting analog to different platforms, and made the original DOS port. Shortly afterwards, Jason Linhart made the Mac port, and has continued to contribute lots of extra code for that platform and for the program in general. The Mac version also includes code contributed by Stephan Somogyi and Nigel Perry, and uses the ZLib library by Jean-loup Gailly & Mark Adler. Later ports were made by Dave Jones (VMS), Magnus Hagander (Win32), Nick Smith (Acorn RiscOS), Scott Tadman (BeOS), and Martin Kraemer & Holger Schranz (BS2000/OSD). Ivan Martinez compiles the OS/2 version. The BS2000/OSD port includes code developed by the Apache Group for use in the Apache HTTP server project. If NEED_MEMMOVE is defined at compile time, then this product includes software developed by the University of California, Berkeley and its contributors.

Thanks to all the other people who have contributed bits of code too. I apologise for not having room to name all of them. And thanks to those who have written standalone helper applications, for making analog more usable.

For the translations into other languages, many thanks are due to the following: Francesc Rocher, M. Mercè Llauge & Francesc Burrull i Mestres (Catalan), Yang Meng (Chinese), Jan Simek (Czech), Adrian Price (Danish), Ferry van het Groenewoud & Joost Baaij (Dutch), Henrik Huhtinen, Steve Kelly & Andrew Staples (Finnish), Patrice Lafont, Lucien Vieira, Jean-Marc Coursimault & Lionel Delaude (French), Mario Ellebrecht, Martin Kraemer, Holger Schranz & Thomas Jacob (German), Dimitris Xenakis (Greek), Laszlo Nemeth (Hungarian), Gustaf Gustafsson (Icelandic), Furio Ercolessi & Luca Andreucci (Italian), Takayuki Matsuki, Stephen Obenski and Motonobu Takahashi (Japanese), Byungkwan Kim (Korean), Jurijs Turjanskis (Latvian), Ingrid (Lithuanian), Jan-Aage Bruvoll, Espen Bjarnø & Pâl Løberg (Norwegian Bokmâl), Magni Onsøien (Norwegian Nynorsk), Wlodek Lapot, Tomek Wozniak & Marcin Sochacki (Polish), Ivan Martinez (Brazilian Portuguese), Jaime Carvalho e Silva (European Portugese), Alex Mihaila (Romanian), San Sanych Timofeev, Boris Litvinenko & Vyacheslav Nikitich (Russian), Mile Peric (Serbo-Croatian), Stefan Billik (Slovak), Andrej Zizmond (Slovene), Javier Solis, Alexander Velasquez, Alfredo Sola & Martin Perez (Spanish), Björn Malmberg (Swedish), and Nezih Erkman (Turkish).

Finally, thanks to all of you for using the program!
