Apache::RequestRec -- A Perl API for Apache request object
my $r = shift;
my $s = $r->server;
my $dir_config = $r->dir_config;
"Apache::RequestRec" provides the Perl API for Apache request object.
Function arguments (if any) and return values are shown in the func-
$s = $r->server;
Gets the "Apache::Server" object for the server the request $r is
dir_config() provides an interface for the per-directory variable
specified by the "PerlSetVar" and "PerlAddVar" directives, and also
can be manipulated via the "APR::Table" methods.
The keys are case-insensitive.
$apr_table = $r->dir_config();
dir_config() called in a scalar context without the $key argument
returns a HASH reference blessed into the APR::Table class. This
object can be manipulated via the APR::Table methods. For available
methods see APR::Table.
@values = $r->dir_config($key);
If the $key argument is passed in the list context a list of all
matching values will be returned. This method is ineffective for
big tables, as it does a linear search of the table. Thefore avoid
using this way of calling dir_config() unless you know that there
could be more than one value for the wanted key and all the values
$value = $r->dir_config($key);
If the $key argument is passed in the scalar context only a single
value will be returned. Since the table preserves the insertion
order, if there is more than one value for the same key, the oldest
value assosiated with the desired key is returned. Calling in the
scalar context is also much faster, as it'll stop searching the ta-
ble as soon as the first match happens.
$r->dir_config($key => $val);
If the $key and the $val arguments are used, the set() operation
will happen: all existing values associated with the key $key (and
the key itself) will be deleted and $value will be placed instead.
$r->dir_config($key => undef);
If $val is undef the unset() operation will happen: all existing
values associated with the key $key (and the key itself) will be
