tr_staticssi -- expand SSI directives #include virtual and #exec cmd
tr_staticssi[-h] [-d doc-root-directory] file.shtml
tr_staticssi reads a file below doc-root-directory and expands SSI directives (#include virtual and #exec cmd). Nested directives up to level 3 are supported. The expanded document is printed to stdout.
This program sets the environment variables DOCUMENT_URI, REQUEST_URI, DOCUMENT_NAME. DOCUMENT_URI and REQUEST_URI are set to the filename provided on the command line. If you have also #exec cmd statements in the code that depend on these variables the you must use the doc-root-directory as current working directory.
The SSI must look like this:
<!--#include virtual="filename" -->
<!--#exec cmd="command" -->
The program is useful if you want to generate static html pages from dynamic html.
