HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI::Environment

NAME

HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI::Environment − a HTTP::Server::Simple mixin to provide the CGI protocol

DESCRIPTION

This mixin abstracts the CGI protocol out from HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI so that it’s easier to provide your own CGI handlers with HTTP::Server::Simple which don’t use CGI .pm

setup_environment
"setup_environemnt" is usually called in the superclass’s accept_hook

This routine in this sub-class clears the environment to the start-up state.

setup_server_url
Sets up the "SERVER_URL" environment variable

setup_environment_from_metadata
This method sets up CGI environment variables based on various meta-headers, like the protocol, remote host name, request path, etc.

See the docs in HTTP::Server::Simple for more detail.

header
"header" turns a single HTTP headers into CGI environment variables.
