which is a little bit odd, since I don't recall attempting to provide a pre-solved solution myself, but whatever.

If the point is to provide a learning exercise in how split can bite you in the ass, then fine.

(or if Apache really does go to some pains to make sure spaces never show up in the various log fields -- say by always representing them as + or %20 -- then yay, but I'm not sure this is actually true.)

    Read the spec.

      • nor does it guarantee that the HTTP command field always consists of exactly 3 space-separated components (hint: it doesn't).
        "...3 space-separated components (hint: it doesn't)"

        I used this: <LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common>, as in the example by kcott.

        From the docs:

        "First, the method used by the client is GET. Second, the client requested the resource /apache_pb.gif, and third, the client used the protocol HTTP/1.0."

        Hence the request field will always look like this: "GET /karls.beer HTTP/1.0".

        Best regards, Karl

        nor does it guarantee that the HTTP command field always consists of exactly 3 space-separated components (hint: it doesn't).

        You read the wrong spec, or you misread the right one:

        The Request-Line begins: -- with a method token, -- followed by the Request-URI -- and the protocol version, -- and ending with CRLF. The elements are separated by SP characters. No CR or LF is allowed except in the final CRLF sequence. Request-Line = Method SP Request-URI SP HTTP-Version CRLF
