DESCRIPTION - LaBrea::Tarpit::Util ^

A collection of utility programs used by other modules and applications of LaBrea::Tarpit

$rv=cache_is_valid(*HANDLE,\%look_n_feel,$short);
  input:        HANDLE
                \look_n_feel
                flag, true  = check short cache
                      false = standard

  returns:      size of file, HANDLE open
                if cache valid
                false, cache requires update

  dispose:      close HANDLE;
$rv = update_cache(\%look_n_feel,\$html,\$short);
  Write new cache file with contents of 
  optional $html and/or $short

  The filename for the short cache is taken from 
  $look_n_feel{html_cache_file} . '.short'

  returns:      true on success
                false if failed
$rv=upd_cache($filename,$pagename,$html,$short);

This is the way update_cache should have worked the first time, sigh....

Update a cache for a page and short report.

  Write new cache file with contents of 
  optional $html and/or $short

  The filename for the short cache is taken from 
  $filename . '.short'

  The page file name is taken from the $filename stub
  $filename.$pagename

  i.e.  $filename = mycache
        $pagename = page2

  eq => mycache.page2

  returns:      true on success
                false if failed
($modtime,$update)=daemon2_cache($cache,$src,$age);
  Return the last modified time of the cache
  file, update cache if older than $age seconds.
  Set $@ on error;

  input:        cache file,
                src file,
                  or
                hash->{d_host}
                    ->{d_port} 
                    ->{d_timeout}
                age in seconds 
                timeout in seconds [default 60]
  returns:      (mod time, 0), no update
                (mod time, 1), updated
                or () on failure
$modtime=page_is_current($cache_time,$page);
  Check to see if page is current

  input:        cache time, path to page file
  returns:      mtime of file or false on failure
$rv=share_open(*LOCK,*FILE,$filename,$nblock,$umask);

  input:        LOCK handle, 
                FILE handle,

                umask           (default 0117)

  returns:      true on success

  close LOCK;

  This is a READ ONLY OPERATION
$rv=ex_open(*LOCK,*FILE,$filename,$func,$nblock,$umask);

Open a file for exclusive access.

  input:    LOCK handle, 
            FILE handle, 
            filename,

$rv = close_file(*LOCK,*FILE);
  close file and lock file
$time_string = http_date($time);
