    This module is contained in the <code>mod_include.c</code> file, and
  ! is compiled in by default. It provides for server-parsed html documents,
  ! known as SPML documents.
  ! Any document with mime type <code>text/x-server-parsed-html</code> or
    <code>text/x-server-parsed-html3</code> will be parsed by this module,
    with the resulting output given the mime type <code>text/html</code>.

  ! <!--%plaintext &lt;?INDEX {\tt text/x-server-parsed-html3} mime type&gt; -->
    
  ! <h2>SPML -- Include file Format</h2>
    
    The document is parsed as an HTML document, with special commands embedded
    as SGML comments. A command has the syntax:
    <blockquote><code>
    &lt;!--#</code><em>element attribute=value attribute=value ...</em>
<code>--&gt;
    </code></blockquote>
    The value will often be enclosed in double quotes; many commands only allow
    a single attribute-value pair.

    The allowed elements are:<p>

  - <!--%plaintext &lt;?INDEX {\tt echo} SPML element&gt; -->
    This command prints one of the include variables, defined below.
    If the variable is unset, it is printed as <code>(none)</code>.

    <dt><strong>exec</strong>

    The exec command executes a given shell command or CGI script.

    The value specifies a (%-encoded) URL relative path to the CGI script.

  + <H2>Flow Control Elements</H2>
  + 
  + These are available in Apache 1.2 and above.  The basic flow control
  + elements are:
  + 
  + <PRE>
  +     &lt;!--#if expr="<I>test_condition</I>" --&gt;
  +     &lt;!--#elif expr="<I>test_condition</I>" --&gt;
  +     &lt;!--#else --&gt;
  +     &lt;!--#endif --&gt;
  + </PRE>
  + 
  + <P> The <B><CODE>if</CODE></B> element works like an
  +     if statement in a programming language.  The test condition
  +     is evaluated and if the result is true, then the text until
  +     the next <B><CODE>elif</CODE></B>, <B><CODE>else</CODE></B>.
  +     or <B><CODE>endif</CODE></B> element is included in the
  +     output stream.
  + 
  + <P> The <B><CODE>elif</CODE></B> or <B><CODE>else</CODE></B>
  +     statements are be used the put text into the output stream
  +     if the original test_condition was false.  These elements
  +     are optional.
  + 
  + <P> The <B><CODE>endif</CODE></B> element ends the 
  +     <B><CODE>if</CODE></B> element and is required.
  + 
  + <P> <I>test_condition</I> is one of the following:
  + 
  + <DL>
  + 
  + <DT><I>string</I><DD>true if <I>string</I> is not
empty
  + 
  + <DT><I>string1</I> = <I>string2</I><BR>
  +     <I>string1</I> != <I>string2</I>
  + 
  + <DD>Compare string1 with string 2.  If string2 has the form <I>/string/</I>
  +     than it is compared as a regular expression.
  +     Regular expressions have the same syntax as those found in the
  +     Unix egrep command.
  + 
  + <DT>( <I>test_condition</I> )<DD>true if <I>test_condition</I>
is true 
  + <DT>! <I>test_condition</I><DD>true if <I>test_condition</I>
is false
  +     <I>test_condition1</I> and <I>test_condition2</I> are true
  + <DT><I>test_condition1</I> && <I>test_condition2</I><DD>true
if both
  +     <I>test_condition1</I> and <I>test_condition2</I> are true
  + <DT><I>test_condition1</I> || <I>test_condition2</I><DD>true
if either
  +     <I>test_condition1</I> or <I>test_condition2</I> is true
  + </DL>
  + 
  + <P> "<I>=</I>" and "</I>!=</I>" bind more tightly than "<I>&&</I>"
and "<I>||</I>".
  +     "<I>!</I>" binds most tightly.  Thus, the following are equivalent:
  + 
  + <PRE>
  +     &lt;!--#if expr="$a = test1 && $b = test2" --&gt;
  +     &lt;!--#if expr="($a = test1) && ($b = test2)" --&gt;
  + </PRE>
  + 
  + <P> Anything that's not recognized as a variable or an operator is
  +     treated as a string.  Strings can also be quoted: <I>'string'</I>.
  +     Unquoted strings can't contain whitespace (blanks and tabs)
  +     because it is used to seperate tokens such as variables.  If
  +     multiple strings are found in a row, they are concatenated using
  +     blanks.  So,
  + 
  + <PRE>
  +      <I>string1    string2</I>  results in <I>string1 string2</I>
  +     <I>'string1    string2'</I> results in <I>string1    string2</I>
  + </PRE>
  + 
  + <P> Variable substitution is done within quoted strings.  You can put
  +     a dollar sign into the string using backslash quoting:
  + 
  + <PRE>
  +     &lt;!--#if expr="$a = \$test" --&gt;
  + </PRE>
