 Marc,
   I've already looked at that part of the code, but before I start hacking
 the apache code, I was wondering if there was an API to open a logfile and
 to get a file descriptor prior to when httpd is forked.
 
   The main reason I want to do this is so that when apache 1.x comes out, I
 can simply cp ~nt_auth/src/*.[ch] to ~apache/src/modules/extra
 make some changes in ~apache/src/modules/extra/Makefile compile and go.
 
 I want to avoid going into ~apache/src/main/http_main.c to get the logging
 capability I need.
   
    Since this web server will be authenticating all of the time, I want to
 minimize the overhead of opening and closing the log file (such as when
 apache changes stderr to be logs/error_log file -> which I am using for
 now).
 
   I also plan to only log when it authenticates as well...
 
 Please tell me there is a way around hacking apache... It will make my
 install script a lot more difficult with a lot of assumptions
 (ass-u-me-tions)!!!!
 
   Thanks in advance,
 	-Henry
