I have yust read into the russian list that Igor plans to integrate
the mod_rewrite functions into the http_script_module.
Sorry for my confusion, but can you explain a bit more what Igor plans?
Will we be able to embed script directly into nginx.conf? Is
mod_rewrite going away in favor of http_script_module?
Now "if" is like some location that has some static configuration. It
will be changed: no static directives inside "if". Only settings, flow
control, and some special directives.
No "rewrite" directives.
I hope now its more clear.
I think it is to make the if more useable and to remove the rewrite
I think also that the 'http_script_module' is not like a script language
more like a description language how the *http-message* should flow thru
nginx, after I reanalyze and rethink, maybe I'am wrong.
And when would the script block? Would it be accessing disk or the
network to get configuration? It might be nice especially for large
sites to store configuration information in an external file or
database, and then access it with an embedded script.
Sorry but this I don't know.
What I assume is that:
1.) use another, but smaller language. to make some small tasks which is
not possible with the mod_perl.
2.) just add more dynamic things into nginx for more flexibility.
