ait has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I noticed that Apache::RequestNotes doesn't seem to be available for Apache2 so I am guessing that this functionality was incorporated in mod_perl 2.0 natively?

If so, would someone kindly point me to an example on how to do this exact same thing with mod_perl 2?

I need something very early in the request that parses form data and then make it avail to the rest of the request. My current solution involves a PerlTransHandler that slurps the content, parses it and saves it to notes. Then I have to re-inject the raw content back with a PerlInputFilterHandler so it's avail for the rest of the request chain.

I hate re-inventing the wheel and I think something like Apache::RequestNotes would really be more elegant for what I'm trying to do.

Many thanks in advance!
