4.1b3a HTRule callback wish, HTParse port problem
Just a couple of things I'd like to see ...
* Ability to add user-defined rules (other than map/pass)
Similar to "gateway" and "proxy" rules, I'd like to add my own rules,
along with a function to call on a match. For a library with callbacks to
spare, I'm surprised that libwww doesn't have one here (HTRule). Just a
nit: the file name is HTRules.[ch] but the functions are called HTRule_*.
* End hostname port parsing on an invalid port character
Not sure about this one, as I'm not positive that only digits are
allowed in a port number. If this is the case, then it would be great if
HTParse would stop parsing the port number when/if it hits a non-digit.
I came across this one in MiniServ while creating an HTTP request to
be passed to the Harvest cache, which looks for a request like this:
So the URL to be sent to the cache looks like this:
The problem is that HTParse() generates:
When I try:
HTParse picks up `port`http: as part of the host name and generates:
If HTParse() stopped port parsing on the 'h' of "http://xxx", all
would be well.
But perhaps I'm missing something?
