DESCRIPTION ^

this mixin adds a method to serve static files from your HTTP::Server::Simple subclass.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

serve_static( $cgi, $base )

Takes a reference to the CGI object and a document root path, and tries to serve a static file. Returns 0 if the file does not exist, returns 1 on success.

This method sets the Date and Last-Modified HTTP headers when sending a response for a valid file. Further to this, the method supports clients which send an If-Modified-Since HTTP header in the request, it will return a 304 Not Modified response if the file is unchanged. See RFC-2616 for full details.

If the client makes a HEAD request then no message body will be returned in the response.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

Bugs or wishlist requests should be submitted via http://rt.cpan.org/

DEPENDENCIES ^

The File::LibMagic module is used to detect the MIME-type of a file. The URI::Escape module is used for URI handling. The HTTP::Date module is used to format the timestamp in the Last-Modified HTTP header.
