Yes, you'll need to get the $r object, which you don't have in your script. $r is the Apache request record.

You should set up your script as an Apache::Registry script. Then you can get $r like this:

my $r = Apache->request;
To set the script up as Apache::Registry, add something like this to httpd.conf:
<Location /perl> SetHandler perl-script PerlHandler Apache::Registry Options +ExecCGI </Location>
This sets up the perl subroutine under the document root to run under Apache::Registry. So put your script there.

Or, if you set up a mod_perl handler, your handler subroutine will be passed $r.

For example, you might set up a handler thusly in your httpd.conf:

<Location /foo> SetHandler perl-script PerlHandler My::Foo </Location>
And then in My::Foo:
package My::Foo; use strict; sub handler { my $r = shift; my $user = $r->connection->user; my($ret, $password) = $r->get_basic_auth_pw; $r->send_http_header; $r->print($user); $r->print($password); } 1;
I'd recommend trying the first approach.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
