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;

In this example we use internal_redirect_handler( ), but you can use any other kind of redirect with this technique.
