Subject Re: Improve mod_rewrite documentation
Date Sun, 03 Aug 2003 20:54:35 GMT

1. The description "" is better formatted
than "".

2. Has anybody requested a syntax that shows the ruleset processing directly?
I see that it would be easier to understand to specify RewriteConds after the pattern of RewriteRules.

3. I assume that the quoting of special characters is done with a backslash character. I do
not know a "slosh".

4. I would like to see a section "related or recommended reading" at the bottom.
- URL Rewriting Guide
- more practical solutions, use cases
- books
- partner sites
- mailing list, forum, news

5. I am missing explanations about concurrent and parallel execution of RewriteRules between
web server requests.
5.1 How much has a called script got to do with mutual exclusion or synchronization of the
5.2 Is there a program available that provides a safe environment (e. g. waiting queues, mutexes)?
5.3 Can a script achieve to perform a function only once even if several request want it to
be done simultanously because the result will be the same for all requests in a time period?

6. Would you like to show relations to design patterns?
6.1 Reactor
6.2 Dispatcher
6.3 Notifier
6.4 Acceptor-Connector
6.5 Command-Processor
6.6 Service Handler
