Abstract: The parseuas module extracts detailed information from user agent strings. The user agent is software that acts as interface to the user, for example a web browser. The client software sending the request to a server is identified in a user agent header field. The header contains the so-called user agent string. In general, user agent strings include information on the browser name, the browser version, the device type, and the operating system. The parseuas module displays and optionally stores this information in new variables as specified by the user.
