Extract Host, Logical Host from URL

downer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am searching for an easy way to accomplish this. The host part is easy, just what comes between http:// and the next /. however logical host seems to be tricky. for instance, and should both get mapped to the same logical host, Is there a module that does this? perhaps a set of heuristics which could be used?

    see URI for parsing URIs. If you just want to get the "main" domain, you could try something like  join(".", ( split(/\./, $domains ) )[-2,-1] ) (if I understand you correctly)

    Best regards,
    perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."

    Erm, you need to clarify what you mean by "logical host". resolves to (for me right at this minute), whereas is a CNAME to which is yet another IP. Perhaps if you can expand on what your definition of "logical host" is you can get a decent answer.

    You mean something like this?
    use strict; use warnings; print m/^.*?(\w+\.\w+)$/ while(<DATA>); __DATA__
    $ perl -l
