|Linux and Microsoft's browscap.ini|
Are they compatible?
| 4:35 am on Jan 1, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I had a question from a visitor to the site in my profile regarding the use of Microsoft's browser capabilities database called browscap.ini.
Is there any way to make use of browscap.ini in a Linux environment without resorting to something like Sun ONE ASP?
If so, are there any security issues I should know about?
Thanks for helping me answer a visitor's question.

Friendly bump to clear up some of last year's stuff.

Come on folks. There surely must be a Linux person who knows the answer to this question. Please help me out and I'll be forever in your debt, for whatever that's worth. :)

Look up the PHP get_browser() function. It can use the Windows browscap.ini, or another one you get from other sources. I've never used it myself, but I know it exists.

Thanks but I am already PHP's official source for browscap.ini. My question was about Linux. :)
Is there native support in Linux for browscap.ini?
Perhaps it's a stupid, newbie question. If so please forgive me. I work on the dark side (MS) and Linux is completely foreign to me. ;)

Oh. In that case, I can't help much. I've never heard of browscap.ini except in the PHP documentation.
