Subject Re: [PATCH] directory_walk optimization (take 1)
Date Sun, 03 Aug 1997 22:29:46 GMT
On second thought Alexei, no I don't want to maintain DirectoryMatch and
Directory ~ at all.  To map them to Files would require far too much
hackery in order to get error messages to look right, and crap like that. 
It would require an extra boolean in the core_dir_config, tests here and
there... it'd be a mess, it's just not worth it. 

Neither are required for NCSA compatibility, which is the grail that we
use to keep the other cruft config directives around.  The number of
people this affects is likely minimal.  And consider that we require
people to at least play with their Configuration ... it's not hard to say
they should play with their httpd.conf during an upgrade as well.  Note
also that since this is Directory it doesn't appear in .htaccess files...
so the number of places an admin has to look for it are minimal. 

Oh yeah I picked up fnmatch.[ch] from FreeBSD-stable.  The berkeley
license should do fine.
