Subject Re: [RFC] Apache2::DirBasedHandler
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2008 16:39:12 GMT
I uploaded a .02 release last night which i think will make something  
like this even easier to accomplish.  This version adds a function  
called uri_to_function, which takes a RequestRec (or derived) object,  
and an array of uri_bits and returns a function name that should be  
used to to handle that request.

I don't really know REST, but from my limited knowledge it seems to me  
that it would be good to be able to easily separate code for post,  
get, put, and delete to the same URI. So with this new version, if you  
subclass uri_to_function to work like this:

return join(qq[_],(lc($r->method),@$uri_bits)) . qq[_page];

then you can very easily achieve that seperation.

I also uploaded Apache2::DirBasedHandler::TT, which is a subclass of  
DirBasedHandler that will pass a Template object, and a base set of TT  
vars into each function call.  It's more or less just in illustration  
of how i thought one might use the init function in  

Feedback welcome
