Subject [PATCH] Reject multiple arguments to <...> block directives
Date Sun, 19 Oct 1997 21:31:00 GMT
Some of the <...> directives allow multiple arguments, some don't. I was
tricked into believing that <Directory> and <Files> belonged to the former
type (but was wrong). IMO, it would be good to "make it work"
symmetrically, i.e., all <...> directives should accept multiple arguments
(ok, the <directory ~ path> syntax is not a goot candidate, but we have
<DirectoryMatch> now.)

Until this has been discussed over (would it be sufficient to insert a
do {...} while (*arg); loop into dirsection() to make it accept multiple
paths?) the appended patch at least makes the user
aware of an (otherwise silently ignored) argument.
