Subject Re: mod_asis handler bug
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2001 20:14:00 GMT
There another bug lurking in mod_asis (reported by Ken Bruinsma in IBM). We are creating
the file bucket with file offset of 0.  Problem is that we have already read in part of
the file (the headers) a bit earlier. Need to give some thought to the best way to fix
this (and what all the implications are).

Perhaps pass in a -1 for offset on the apr_bucket_file_create() when we want to rely on
the system file pointer? Which reminds me that I still need to look at the apr_file_seek
issue Cliff, Ryan and I were discussing a few weeks past.

Cliff, I am about out of time today so if you want to pursue this, be my guest:-)
