A.3. Redirecting POST Requests
Under mod_cgi, it's not easy to redirect POST requests to another location. With mod_perl, however, you can easily redirect POST requests. All you have to do is read in the content, set the method to GET, populate args( ) with the content to be forwarded, and finally do the redirect, as shown in Example A-2.
Example A-2. redirect.pl
use Apache::Constants qw(M_GET); my $r = shift; my $content = $r->content; $r->method("GET"); $r->method_number(M_GET); $r->headers_in->unset("Content-length"); $r->args($content); $r->internal_redirect_handler("/new/url");
In this example we use internal_redirect_handler( ), but you can use any other kind of redirect with this technique.
