Subject [OT] Using MP for Auto Index w/last-modified-date
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 19:27:36 GMT
A client of mine provides a data service using Apache
2 and auto indexing.  Their clients automatically poll
their system and pull the data from the http
directories as it is generated.

Their typical directories have 24 hourly files for the
last 4 months (about 3000 files in each directory).  A
new file is generated each hour, and sometimes earlier
files must be revised if problems were detected.  
Apache HTTPD supports a pattern filter parameter (P)
when requesting auto indexed directories, but I am not
aware of any way to request a directory listing using
a last-modified-date parameter.  Using the
last-modified-date parameter is ideal as scraper
clients can ask for any new files since their last
query, and get both expected and any revised data

I haven't seen any modules to provide a
last-modified-date functionality to Apache httpd --
has anyone seen an MP2 script to do it?
