Extract Internet Domain Components Using the Public Suffix List

## Description

The 'Public Suffix List' (<https://publicsuffix.org/>) is a collection of top-level domains ('TLDs') which include global top-level domainsa ('gTLDs') such as '.com' and '.net'; country top-level domains ('ccTLDs') such as '.de' and '.cn'; and, brand top-level domains such as '.apple' and '.google'. Tools are provided to extract internet domain components using the public suffix list base data.

- `libpsl`: <https://github.com/rockdaboot/libpsl>
- Public Suffix List: <https://publicsuffix.org/>

## What's Inside The Tin

The following functions are implemented:

- `apex_domain`: Return the apex/top-private domain from a vector of domains
- `is_public_suffix`: Test whether a domain is a public suffix
- `public_suffix`: Return the public suffix from a vector of domains
- `suffix_extract`: Separate a domain into component parts
- `suffix_extract2`: Separate a domain into component parts (urltools compatible output)

## PRE-Installation

You need a recent `libpsl`.

- macOS: `brew install libpsl`
- Debian/Ubuntu-ish: Many repos have old versions so it's _highly_ suggested that you build from source and ensure the library & header files are accessible
- Windows: Just use `urltools::suffix_extract()` until winlibs are available for psl

## Installation

```{r eval=FALSE}
devtools::install_github("hrbrmstr/psl")
```

```{r message=FALSE, warning=FALSE, error=FALSE, include=FALSE}
options(width=120)
```

## Usage

```{r message=FALSE, warning=FALSE, error=FALSE}
library(psl)
library(tidyverse)

# current verison
packageVersion("psl")

```

```{r message=FALSE, warning=FALSE, error=FALSE}
doms <- c(
"", "com", "example.com", "www.example.com",
".com", ".example", ".example.com", ".example.example", "example",
