mod_perl Apache2 RequestRec allowed problem
I am trying to set the allowed bitmask in a custom request handler
when I receive the OPTIONS method (and when I receive a method request
for a method I do not support).
I have followed the example in
but Apache always returns "Allow: GET,HEAD,POST,OPTIONS,TRACE" in the
header irrespective of what options I set.
For example, lets say I only accept PUT to try to restrict the
available options to OPTIONS, TRACE, and PUT.
I have tried both
$r->allowed($r->allowed | (1<< Apache2::Const::M_PUT));
with a return of Apache2::Const::DECLINED in either case in my handler.
Neither ends up modifying the supported options sent to the client.
In tha handler if I print the return value of $r->allowed:
print $r->allowed(1<<Apache2::Const::M_PUT) . "\n";
print $r->allowed() . "\n";
So the record is being updated, but for some reason Apache is not
basing its response to the client off of the record.
Can anyone provide any insight into why I am unable to modify the list
of request methods my handler is capable of servicing?
