->redirect($full_url") isn't working because of ", its a typo
String found where operator expected at - line 1, at end of line
(Missing semicolon on previous line?)
Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at - line 1.
From the output I now see, I can use $reponse->code to detect the redirection.
Now, how do I proceed to the next step, which is to send that redirection, unaltered, back to the client that made the original request to my cgi script. That is, imagine my client code above being in a CGI script that submits a request to a secure site, and if I get a redirect, I have to pass it back to the client that submitted the original request to my CGI script. How do I do this? Surely it isn't as simple as:
But that is what would be implied by the following from the documentation:
$r->request( $request )
This is used to get/set the request attribute. The request attribu
+te is a reference to the the request that caused this response. It do
+es not have to be the same request passed to the $ua->request() metho
+d, because there might have been redirects and authorization retries
If it is that simple, would any headers I may have printed before printing the redirect adversely affect how the redirect works, or do I have to ensure that nothing, not even headers, get printed before I know whether or not a redirection has occured?
If I get a redirection, the only thing I ought to do in this use case is pass it on to whatever client sent a request to my CGI script, and it looks like "print $response->as_string;" will do that: request parameters and all. It is true I need to store some data in this eventuality, but that is just an extra function call inside the conditional block that checks to see whether or not the response code is between 300 and 399 inclusive., That, and not allowing my code to follow redirections, ought to suffice. Is there any reason to expect that to break?
