Re: [K12OSN] off topic - firefox history files



That would only show you the last time _anything_ was viewed, not each
entry.

Check this out for a perl script to parse the history.dat:
http://jwz.livejournal.com/312657.html

It barfed on my history.dat, with an "unparseable cell"; maybe you'll
have better luck.

The history.dat is in the under-documented "Mork" format. IIRC, they
switched to SQLite for FF 2.0, so that should be easier to handle.
