#include <libpsl.h>

DESCRIPTION

Public Suffix List [1] library functions.

FUNCTIONS

psl_load_file ()

psl_ctx_t *
psl_load_file (const char *fname);

This function loads the public suffixes file named fname . To free the allocated resources, call psl_free().

The suffixes are expected to be UTF−8 encoded (lowercase + NFKC) if they are international.

Parameters

 

Returns

Pointer to a PSL context or NULL on failure.

Since: 0.1

psl_load_fp ()

psl_ctx_t *
psl_load_fp (FILE *fp);

This function loads the public suffixes from a FILE pointer. To free the allocated resources, call psl_free().

The suffixes are expected to be UTF−8 encoded (lowercase + NFKC) if they are international.

Parameters

 

Returns

Pointer to a PSL context or NULL on failure.

Since: 0.1

psl_latest ()

psl_ctx_t *
psl_latest (const char *fname);

This function loads the the latest available PSL data from either

fname (application specific filename, may be NULL)

• location specified during built−time (filename from ./configure −−with−psl−distfile)

• built−in PSL data (generated from ./configure −−with−psl−file)

• location of built−in data (filename from ./configure −−with−psl−file)

If none of the above is available, the function returns NULL.

To free the allocated resources, call psl_free().

Parameters

 

Returns

Pointer to a PSL context or NULL on failure.

Since: 0.16

psl_builtin ()

const psl_ctx_t *
psl_builtin (void);

This function returns the PSL context that has been generated and built in at compile−time. You don't have to free the returned context explicitly.

The builtin data also contains punycode entries, one for each international domain name.

If the generation of built−in data has been disabled during compilation, NULL will be returned. When using the builtin psl context, you can provide UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or ASCII/ACE (punycode) representations of domains to functions like psl_is_public_suffix().

Returns

Pointer to the built in PSL data or NULL if this data is not available.

Since: 0.1

psl_free ()

void
psl_free (psl_ctx_t *psl);

This function frees the the PSL context that has been retrieved via psl_load_fp() or psl_load_file().

Parameters

 

Since: 0.1

psl_is_public_suffix ()

int
psl_is_public_suffix (const psl_ctx_t *psl,
const
char *domain);

This function checks if domain is a public suffix by the means of the Mozilla Public Suffix List [2] .

For cookie domain checking see psl_is_cookie_domain_acceptable().

International domain names have to be either in UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or in ASCII/ACE format (punycode). Other encodings likely result in incorrect return values. Use helper function psl_str_to_utf8lower() for normalization domain .

psl is a context returned by either psl_load_file(), psl_load_fp() or psl_builtin().

Parameters

   

Returns

1 if domain is a public suffix, 0 if not.

Since: 0.1

psl_is_public_suffix2 ()

int
psl_is_public_suffix2 (const psl_ctx_t *psl,
const
char *domain,
int
type);

This function checks if domain is a public suffix by the means of the Mozilla Public Suffix List [2] .

type specifies the PSL section where to perform the lookup. Valid values are PSL_TYPE_PRIVATE, PSL_TYPE_ICANN, PSL_TYPE_NO_STAR_RULE, and PSL_TYPE_ANY.

PSL_TYPE_NO_STAR_RULE switches of the 'prevailing star rule' (see List [3] under 'Algorithm' 2.). Applying the flag means that TLDs not explicitly listed in the PSL are *not* treated as public suffixes.

International domain names have to be either in UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or in ASCII/ACE format (punycode). Other encodings likely result in incorrect return values. Use helper function psl_str_to_utf8lower() for normalization domain .

psl is a context returned by either psl_load_file(), psl_load_fp() or psl_builtin().

Parameters

     

Returns

1 if domain is a public suffix, 0 if not.

Since: 0.1

psl_unregistrable_domain ()

const char *
psl_unregistrable_domain (const psl_ctx_t *psl,
const
char *domain);

This function finds the longest public suffix part of domain by the means of the Mozilla Public Suffix List [2] .

International domain names have to be either in UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or in ASCII/ACE format (punycode). Other encodings likely result in incorrect return values. Use helper function psl_str_to_utf8lower() for normalization domain .

psl is a context returned by either psl_load_file(), psl_load_fp() or psl_builtin().

Parameters

   

Returns

Pointer to longest public suffix part of domain or NULL if domain does not contain a public suffix (or if psl is NULL).

Since: 0.1

psl_registrable_domain ()

const char *
psl_registrable_domain (const psl_ctx_t *psl,
const
char *domain);

This function finds the shortest private suffix part of domain by the means of the Mozilla Public Suffix List [2] .

International domain names have to be either in UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or in ASCII/ACE format (punycode). Other encodings likely result in incorrect return values. Use helper function psl_str_to_utf8lower() for normalization domain .

psl is a context returned by either psl_load_file(), psl_load_fp() or psl_builtin().

Parameters

   

Returns

Pointer to shortest private suffix part of domain or NULL if domain does not contain a private suffix (or if psl is NULL).

Since: 0.1

psl_suffix_count ()

int
psl_suffix_count (const psl_ctx_t *psl);

This function returns number of public suffixes maintained by psl . The number of exceptions within the Public Suffix List are not included.

If the information is not available, the return value is −1 (since 0.19). This is the case with DAFSA blobs or if psl is NULL.

Parameters

 

Returns

Number of public suffixes entries in PSL context or −1 if this information is not available.

Since: 0.1

psl_suffix_exception_count ()

int
psl_suffix_exception_count (const psl_ctx_t *psl);

This function returns number of public suffix exceptions maintained by psl .

If the information is not available, the return value is −1 (since 0.19). This is the case with DAFSA blobs or if psl is NULL.

Parameters

 

Returns

Number of public suffix exceptions in PSL context or −1 if this information is not available.

Since: 0.1

psl_suffix_wildcard_count ()

int
psl_suffix_wildcard_count (const psl_ctx_t *psl);

This function returns number of public suffix wildcards maintained by psl .

If the information is not available, the return value is −1 (since 0.19). This is the case with DAFSA blobs or if psl is NULL.

Parameters

 

Returns

Since: 0.10.0

psl_builtin_file_time ()

time_t
psl_builtin_file_time (void);

This function returns the mtime of the Public Suffix List file that has been built in.

If the generation of built−in data has been disabled during compilation, 0 will be returned.

Returns

time_t value or 0.

Since: 0.1

psl_builtin_sha1sum ()

const char *
psl_builtin_sha1sum (void);

If the generation of built−in data has been disabled during compilation, an empty string will be returned.

Returns

String containing SHA1 checksum or an empty string.

Since: 0.1

psl_builtin_filename ()

const char *
psl_builtin_filename (void);

This function returns the file name of the Public Suffix List file that has been built in.

Returns

String containing the PSL file name or an empty string.

Since: 0.1

psl_builtin_outdated ()

int
psl_builtin_outdated (void);

This function checks if the built−in data is older than the file it has been created from. If it is, it might be a good idea for the application to reload the PSL. The mtime is taken as reference.

If the PSL file does not exist, it is assumed that the built−in data is not outdated.

Returns

1 if the built−in is outdated, 0 otherwise.

Since: 0.10.0

psl_is_cookie_domain_acceptable ()

int
psl_is_cookie_domain_acceptable (const psl_ctx_t *psl,
const
char *hostname,
const
char *cookie_domain);

This helper function checks whether cookie_domain is an acceptable cookie domain value for the request hostname .

For international domain names both, hostname and cookie_domain , have to be either in UTF−8 (lowercase + NFKC) or in ASCII/ACE (punycode) format. Other encodings or mixing UTF−8 and punycode likely result in incorrect return values.

Use helper function psl_str_to_utf8lower() for normalization of hostname and cookie_domain .

Examples:

1. Cookie domain 'example.com' would be acceptable for hostname 'www.example.com', but '.com' or 'com' would NOT be acceptable since 'com' is a public suffix.

2. Cookie domain 'his.name' would be acceptable for hostname 'remember.his.name', but NOT for 'forgot.his.name' since 'forgot.his.name' is a public suffix.

Parameters

     

Returns

1 if acceptable, 0 if not acceptable.

Since: 0.1

psl_dist_filename ()

const char *
psl_dist_filename (void);

This function returns the file name of the distribution/system PSL data file. This file will be considered by psl_latest().
