Subject [mp2] $req->main->is_initial_req == 0 ???
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 21:18:19 GMT
-------------8<---------- Start Bug Report ------------8<----------
1. Problem Description:

    I'm not sure if this is my interpretation of the documentation or a
    real problem with the code.  The documentation says:

    >   If the current request is a sub-request, this method returns a
    >   blessed reference to the main request structure. If the current
    >   request is the main request, then this method returns undef.
    >   To figure out whether you are inside a main request or a
    >   sub-request/internal redirect, use $r->is_initial_req.

    "Main" to me says the one that was received by the server over the
    internet -- from the client -- ie no matter how many requests deep
    we are at any given point, main() always returns the top most item
    on the pile.  In that case, checking main->is_initial_request should
    always be 1 and looking at the uri() should always be what the server
    got from the client.

    If that's the correct interpretation of what the documentation says,
    then I suspect there's a problem within the code as outlined in the
    message subject -- main() isn't really main!

    I found this particular discrepancy with a structure similar to the


      <!--#include virtual="/file2.html" -->


       <!--#include virtual="/bin/form" -->


       [does a bunch of stuff and eventually calls $self->request_uri, see below]

    # Page->request_uri()
    sub request_uri ($)
       my ($self) = shift;

    print '<!-- is_initial ' . $self->request->is_initial_req . " -->\n";
    print '<!-- uri ' . $self->request->uri . " -->\n";

    if ($self->request->main)
    print '<!-- main->is_initial ' . $self->request->main->is_initial_req .
" -->\n";
    print '<!-- main->uri ' . $self->request->main->uri . " -->\n";

    if ($self->request->main->main)
    print '<!-- main->main->is_initial ' . $self->request->main->main->is_initial_req
. " -->\n";
    print '<!-- main->main->uri ' . $self->request->main->main->uri .
" -->\n";

       my ($req) = $self->request;

       # Keep going backwards until you find the actual initial request.
       $req = $req->main while (!$req->is_initial_req);

    print '<!-- req->uri ' . $req->uri . " -->\n";

       return $req->uri;

    The browser's HTML when accessing http://server/file1.html shows:

       <!-- is_initial 0 -->
       <!-- uri /bin/form -->
       <!-- main->is_initial 0 -->
       <!-- main->uri /file2.html -->
       <!-- main->main->is_initial 1 -->
       <!-- main->main->uri /file1.html -->
       <!-- req->uri /file1.html -->
