Subject Re: apreq_parse_generic example
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2013 20:00:31 GMT
Finally got some working code. Registered the parser for the content type:

  apreq_register_parser("application/json", apreq_parse_generic);

in a pre_init hook, then normal apreq_handle_apache2 and apreq_body calls, then a apreq_parser_get
call to get the parser and:

  dummy = *(apreq_param_t **)parser->ctx;
  apr_brigade_pflatten(dummy->upload, &val, &vlen, r->pool);

to get the string of the body in val/vlen.  Is there a better way?
