Subject (silly?) mod_rewrite question
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2003 07:08:32 GMT
currently I'm looking through mod_rewrite to fix some issues (e.g. there's 
some confusion with url root ('/') and filesystem root 
(ap_os_is_path_absolute) that creates some problems on non-/-root systems 
[like Win32]).

However, I stumbled across a piece of code, that I really don't understand 
(yeah, it's mod_rewrite, I know ;-))

Please have a look at the conditions in line 2061 and line 2148.
I can't imagine, in what cases the latter ever will be true. As far as _I_ 
can see, all stuff that could be true there, will be handled by line 2061.

The latter was added in rev 1.56 (Ralf's big comment and cleanup fix in 
Nov. 1997). But I can't extract from the log or the comments, why this 
additional section is neccessary and when it is true.

Could someone enlighten me, please?

Thanks, nd
