Subject RE: [users@httpd] Server variable in apache 2 mod perl 2

If you use Perl in CGI, you can access all the environment variables in
the %ENV hash.
E.g. $ENV{REMOTE_HOST} returns the DNS name of the client.

In apache-ASP, $Response->ServerVariables() is the equivalent but you'd
need to check the docs for details.

Generally, every server-sided technology has a mechanism for accessing
environement variables but the methods and syntax vary enormously. You'd
have to be much more specific if you want more help. Also, I should
point out that this is really to do with server-sided scripting and
nothing to do with apache. You might be better trying the list for
whatever server-sided technology you choose..
