Subject Re: CouchDB _show and 404?
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2009 03:48:22 GMT
I'd think this would work:

function(doc, req) {
 if(doc) {
   // regular doc display logic
 } else { // document not found
   if(req.docId) {
     return { 'code': 404, 'body': 'Page not found!'});
   } else {
     // handle unspecified doc id
   }
 }
}
