Hi Oliver,

For now, I was just concentrating on the "combined" format that is used
as an example on the apache site.  I will probably branch out into
parsing the log format itself later once I get more experience with it.

Also, does anyone have a smallish block of apache log files (<30k) that
I can use for testing?

All the best,
Chris Yocum
