Exam project: e-mail log analyzer (ProSys)

Published on May 5th, 2006



In our second semester course on programming and systems development we were allowed to choose between three exam questions. We chose the question titled “data-mining and visualization”.

The task was to build a program that would allow us to parse and analyze a series of well-defined mailinglist log files. The actual effect of reading our project report can (for the twisted mind at least) be rather funny since we consequently translate all programming expressions into Danish. The illustration to the right is the RFC 822 definition of a valid e-mail adress, written as a regular expression.

This paper was written in collaboration with Lassegruppen.
