Suppose page transactions like this:
foo.cgi => bar.html => baz.cgi ?sid=0123456 ?sid=0123456
It is difficult to keep sid query parameter between two cgis without cookies (or mod_rewrite hacks).
Apache::StickyQuery is a filter that rewrites all links in HTML file using "sticky query". It would be useful in keeping state (ie. like Session IDs) without using Cookies. See HTML::StickyQuery for details.
This module is Filter aware, meaning that it can work within Apache::Filter framework without modification.
StickyQuery parameters are automatically retrieved via current query string. Options to change this is one of TODOs. (Hint: inherit from Apache::StickyQuery and override
Apache::StickyQuery has the following configuration variables.
PerlSetVar StickyQueryAbs 0 PerlSetVar StickyQueryOverride 1 PerlSetVar StickyQueryRegexp ^/cgi-bin/
each of which corresponds to those of HTML::StickyQuery. See HTML::StickyQuery for details.
