NAME

Apache2::Layout - mod_perl 2.0 html layout engine

SYNOPSIS

httpd.conf:

  PerlModule Apache2::Layout

  Alias /layout /usr/local/apache2/htdocs
  <Location /layout>
    PerlOutputFilterHandler Apache2::Layout

    PerlSetVar LayoutFooter /footer.html
    PerlSetVar LayoutHeader /header.html

DESCRIPTION

Apache2::Layout is a filter module that can be used to inject HTML layout into HTML documents. Very handy when trying to apply customizations to existing HTML content without needing to change them.

Only documents with a content type of "text/html" are affected - all others are passed through unaltered.

LayoutDebug

Logs debugging information about the processing. Combined with LayoutComments, will insert a debug summary as an HTML comment at the end of the filtered document.

  PerlSetVar LayoutDebug On
