Subject: 'include virtual' cannot fully work with remote URI
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 771b
The documentation for the Apache module mod_include ( says "The URL cannot contain a scheme or hostname, only a path and an optional query string." CGI::SSI::_include_virtual apparently tries to remove this restriction by accepting a scheme and host, and using LWP to do a fetch. But this cannot work as expected, because any SSI variables on the remote site will not have any relationship to SSI variables in this session: only by using a query string would it be possible to pass any data, and there is no way of getting that into the SSI at the other end. It seems to me that the restriction in mod_include is there for good reason, and relaxing it without being able to give full functionality is misleading.

Instead of removing this feature, I just added some documentation (0.91) to make it clear. Alas, what else to do? Thanks.
