|jontec_||thrig: any idea what the AddHandler looks like? Is it just AddHandler perl .something ?|
|jpeg||jontec_: you need to ScriptAlias that one particular directory. ScriptAlias doesn't take wildcards.|
that's the problem. it's not a matter of adding a handler unless you turn on Options ExecCGI for that directory and forgo the ScriptAlias'ing.
|jontec_||jpeg: but then I could only alias cgi-bin to one specific user's cgi-bin folder, correct?|
|thrig||You could enable "AddHandler cgi-script .cgi" but that lets folks strew executables all over the place, which is very difficult to audit|
|aZaFred||I have a quick question, if I have a while loop that runs a command a couple hundred times, what is a good way for making the program run more than one command in the background?|
A sort of multi-threaded loop
|jontec_||here's what I have: http://pastie.caboo.se/57379|
|thrig||another option: something like ScriptAliasMatch /~(.*)cgi-bin/(.*) "/some/where/public_html/$1cgi-bin/$2"|
|jpeg||jontec_: go with thrig's idea. scriptaliasmatch looks like what you want.|
|thrig||aZaFred: shell and &, fork/exec, any of many process management modules on CPAN|
if you want "A sort of multi-threaded loop" on steroids, you want POE
|CydeWeys||Where's a list of regex modifiers? You know, something like ///g ... but I don't want g, I want another one, but I don't remember the letter.|
|aZaFred||thrig, I though of that, but I am actually not forking an external command...|
|thrig||so, what are you doing?|
what do you mean by "command", then?
|aZaFred||looks promising ;)|
|CydeWeys||Perlre only lists four of the modifiers, not including the one I want.|
|aZaFred||Net::Ping for now while testing|
|CydeWeys||haha, found it in perlop|
I was looking for o
I hope you weren't.
|CydeWeys||What's wrong with o ?|
|buu||Actually not that much, it's just useless 99% of the time and very rarely correctly used.|
|CydeWeys||Doesn't it save efficiency by not having to compile the regex each time?|
I have a composite regex that nevertheless never changes.
/o can't hurt, right?
|buu||Unless it can.|
|thrig||/o can be an annoying source of bugs if the regex does change|
|CydeWeys||Mine can't change at all.|
|aZaFred||thrig, that POE will work just fine! Thanks for the pointer!|
|thrig||more avoidable if you set the regex at the top, via: my $REGEX_THAT_NEVER_CHANGES_EVER = qr/.../o;|
then the /o is visible, not hidden somewhere in the guts of the script
|jontec_||this is all I needed: AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl|
I had my idea of how the handlers are setup twisted
(and that was a malformed sentence)
