libapreq2 Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies libapreq2-2.16.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

                    Apache HTTP Server Request Library

  What is it?
  -----------
  httpd-apreq is subproject of the Apache HTTP Server Project 
  whose committers develop and maintain the libapreq C library
  and its language bindings for Perl (contributions for additional 
  language bindings are most welcome).

  libapreq is a safe, standards-compliant, high-performance library 
  used for parsing HTTP cookies, query-strings and POST data.  The 
  original version (libapreq-1.X) was designed by Lincoln Stein and Doug 
  MacEachern.  The perl APIs Apache::Request and Apache::Cookie are the
  lightweight mod_perl analogs of the CGI and CGI::Cookie perl modules.

  Version 2 of libapreq is an improved codebase designed around APR
  and Apache-2's input filter API.  The C codebase is separated into
  two independent components:

      1) libapreq2, a shared library which is based on 
         libapr and libaprutil.

      2) A collection of modules:

          - mod_apreq2, a filter module for the Apache 2.X webserver,
          - a CGI module included in libapreq2 itself,
          - a custom module for general applications.

  Version 2 also includes the perl APIs for libapreq2- Apache2::Request,
  Apache2::Upload and Apache2::Cookie.  The corresponding XS modules 
  are generated by ExtUtils::XSBuilder, which is based on the new build
  system created specifically for mod_perl2.


  The Latest Version
  ------------------

  Details of the latest version can be found on the libapreq
  project page at 

                http://httpd.apache.org/apreq


  Documentation
  -------------

  The documentation is in the docs/ directory.  It is
  based on Doxygen, and can be regenerated by typing

        % make docs

  in the main directory.


  Installation
  ------------

  For full details please consult the INSTALL file.  Briefly,
  to install just the C API (libapreq2 + environment modules)
  on a Unix-like system:

            % ./configure --with-apache2-apxs=/path/to/apache2/bin/apxs
            % make
            % make test
            % make install

   To build and install the perl API as well, either add
   the "--enable-perl-glue" configure option, or let Makefile.PL
   enable it for you:

            % perl Makefile.PL --with-apache2-apxs=/path/to/apache2/bin/apxs
            % make
            % make test 
            % make install
