Subject [PATCH] nudge the core output filter to allow streaming output
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2002 19:11:21 GMT
The content length filter is clever enough to handle sporadic output
from CGIs, but just because it passes down a brigade with the output
so far doesn't mean it will be sent.  By adding a flush bucket to the
end of the brigade, we make sure that core output filter doesn't hold
onto it for a "long time" in case the amount of output is too small to
sent immediately.  The content length filter has already figured out
that it will be a "long time" before more output is available.

printenv with flushing enabled for STDOUT and a sleep after every
output statement

use mod_cgi for handling the cgi request; mod_cgid is busted because
the apr_file_t in the pipe bucket doesn't look like a pipe and the
timeout tricks done by the content length filter are ineffective (the
timeout calls get APR_EINVAL)
