How about something like the following?

# mod_perl 1.29 Configuration:

# Set up apache so that all pages served with a .pl or .pm extension will be executed
# via the mod_perl package which is statically linked in with Apache.

SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler Apache::Registry
PerlSendHeader Off
Options +ExecCGI


# cgi configuration

SetHandler cgi-script
Options +ExecCGI


AliasMatch ^/index.* /some/path/to/srcript/real_index.pl

Subject: apache url mapping question

this isn't necessarily a mod_perl question, but it is for a mod_perl
app, and I'm using mp to generate the location directives in apache

i need to get the following urls mapped onto a handler in httpd.conf
/
/index
/index.*

i thought about something like this

i'm thinking that maybe its best to do /index.html and then do a
mod_rewrite or rediect to index.html

suggestions?
