Description
       "Apache2::HookRun" exposes parts of the Apache HTTP protocol
       implementation, responsible for invoking callbacks for each HTTP
       Request cycle phase.

       Armed with that API, you could run some of the http protocol framework
       parts when implementing your own protocols. For example see how HTTP
       AAA (access, auth and authz) hooks are called from a protocol handler,
       implementing a command server, which has nothing to do with HTTP. Also
       you can see in Synopsis how to re-implement Apache HTTP cycle in the
       protocol handler.

       Using this API you could probably also change the normal Apache
       behavior (e.g. invoking some hooks earlier than normal, or later), but
       before doing that you will probably need to spend some time reading
       through the Apache C code. That's why some of the methods in this
       document, point you to the specific functions in the Apache source
       code. If you just try to use the methods from this module, without
       understanding them well, don't be surprised if you will get some nasty
       crashes, from which mod_perl can't protect you.

API
       "Apache2::HookRun" provides the following functions and/or methods:

   "die"
       Kill the current request

         $r->die($type);

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       arg1: $type ( integer )
           Why the request is dieing. Expects an Apache status constant.

       ret: no return value
       since: 2.0.00

       This method doesn't really abort the request, it just handles the
       sending of the error response, logging the error and such.  You want to
       take a look at the internals of "ap_die()" in
       httpd-2.0/modules/http/http_request.c for more details.

   "invoke_handler"
       Run the response phase.

         $rc = $r->invoke_handler();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::HTTP_..."

       since: 2.0.00

       "invoke_handler()" allows modules to insert filters, sets a default
       handler if none is set, runs "run_handler()" and handles some errors.

       For more details see "ap_invoke_handler()" in
       httpd-2.0/server/config.c.

   "run_access_checker"
       Run the resource access control phase.

         $rc = $r->run_access_checker();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           the current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase runs before a user is authenticated, so this hook is really
       to apply additional restrictions independent of a user. It also runs
       independent of '"Require"' directive usage.

   "run_auth_checker"
       Run the authentication phase.

         $rc = $r->run_auth_checker();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           the current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase is used to check to see if the resource being requested is
       available for the authenticated user ("$r->user" and
       "$r->ap_auth_type").

       It runs after the access_checker and check_user_id hooks.

       Note that it will only be called if Apache determines that access
       control has been applied to this resource (through a '"Require"'
       directive).

   "run_check_user_id"
       Run the authorization phase.

         $rc = $r->run_check_user_id();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This hook is used to analyze the request headers, authenticate the
       user, and set the user information in the request record ("$r->user"
       and "$r->ap_auth_type").

       This hook is only run when Apache determines that
       authentication/authorization is required for this resource (as
       determined by the '"Require"' directive).

       It runs after the access_checker hook, and before the auth_checker
       hook.

   "run_fixups"
       Run the fixup phase.

         $rc = $r->run_fixups();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase allows modules to perform module-specific fixing of HTTP
       header fields.  This is invoked just before the response phase.

   "run_handler"
       Run the response phase.

         $rc = $r->run_handler();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The request_rec

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       "run_handler()" is called internally by "invoke_handler()". Use
       "run_handler()" only if you want to bypass the extra functionality
       provided by "invoke_handler()".

   "run_header_parser"
       Run the header parser phase.

         $rc = $r->run_header_parser();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           "Apache2::Const::OK" or "Apache2::Const::DECLINED".

       since: 2.0.00

   "run_log_transaction"
       Run the logging phase.

         $rc = $r->run_log_transaction();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_..."

       since: 2.0.00

       This hook allows modules to perform any module-specific logging
       activities over and above the normal server things.

   "run_map_to_storage"
       Run the map_to_storage phase.

         $rc = $r->run_map_to_storage();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           "Apache2::Const::DONE" (or "Apache2::HTTP_*") if this contextless
           request was just fulfilled (such as "TRACE"), "Apache2::Const::OK"
           if this is not a file, and "Apache2::Const::DECLINED" if this is a
           file.  The core map_to_storage ("Apache2::HOOK_RUN_LAST") will
           "directory_walk()" and "file_walk()" the "$r->filename" (all
           internal C functions).

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase allows modules to set the per_dir_config based on their own
       context (such as "<Proxy>" sections) and responds to contextless
       requests such as "TRACE" that need no security or filesystem mapping
       based on the filesystem.

   "run_post_read_request"
       Run the post_read_request phase.

         $rc = $r->run_post_read_request();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK" or
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase is run right after "read_request()" or
       "internal_redirect()", and not run during any subrequests.  This hook
       allows modules to affect the request immediately after the request has
       been read, and before any other phases have been processes.  This
       allows modules to make decisions based upon the input header fields

   "run_translate_name"
       Run the translate phase.

         $rc = $r->run_translate_name();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           The current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase gives modules an opportunity to translate the URI into an
       actual filename.  If no modules do anything special, the server's
       default rules will be applied.

   "run_type_checker"
       Run the type_checker phase.

         $rc = $r->run_type_checker();

       obj: $r ( "Apache2::RequestRec object" )
           the current request

       ret: $rc ( integer )
           The status of the current phase run: "Apache2::Const::OK",
           "Apache2::Const::DECLINED", "Apache2::HTTP_...".

       since: 2.0.00

       This phase is used to determine and/or set the various document type
       information bits, like "Content-type" (via "$r->content_type"),
       language, etc.
