       Apache2::Util - Perl API for Misc Apache Utility functions

         use Apache2::Util ();

         # OS escape path
         $escaped_path = Apache2::Util::escape_path($path, "a 'long' file.html");

         # format time as a string
         my $fmt = "%a, %D %H:%M:%S %Z";
         $fmtdate = Apache2::Util::ht_time($r->pool, $r->request_time, $fmt, 0);

       Various Apache utilities that don't fit into any other group.

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

       convert an OS path to a URL in an OS dependant way.

         $escaped_path = Apache2::Util::escape_path($path, $p);
         $escaped_path = Apache2::Util::escape_path($path, $p, $partial);

       arg1: $path ( string )
           The path to convert

       arg2: $p ( "APR::Pool" )
           The pool to allocate from

       opt arg3: $partial ( boolean )
           if TRUE, assume that the path will be appended to something with a
           '/' in it (and thus does not prefix "./")

           if FALSE it prepends "./" unless $path contains ":" optionally
           followed by "/".

           the default is TRUE

       ret: $escaped_path ( string )
           The escaped path

       since: 2.0.00

       Convert time from an integer value into a string in a specified format

         $time_str = Apache2::Util::ht_time($p);
         $time_str = Apache2::Util::ht_time($p, $time);
         $time_str = Apache2::Util::ht_time($p, $time, $fmt);
         $time_str = Apache2::Util::ht_time($p, $time, $fmt, $gmt);

       arg1: $p ( "APR::Pool object" )
           The pool to allocate memory from

       opt arg2: $time ( number )
           The time to convert (e.g., "time()" or "$r->request_time").

           If the value is not passed the current time will be used.

       opt arg3: $fmt ( string )
           The format to use for the conversion, using strftime(3) tokens.

           If the value is not passed the default format used is:

             "%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S %Z"

       opt arg4: $gmt ( boolean )
           The time will be not converted to GMT if FALSE is passed.

           If the value is not passed TRUE (do convert) is used as a default.

       ret: $time_str (string)
           The string that represents the specified time

       since: 2.0.00


       Use current time, the default format and convert to GMT:

         $fmtdate = Apache2::Util::ht_time($r->pool);

       Use my time, the default format and convert to GMT:

         my $time = time+100;
         $fmtdate = Apache2::Util::ht_time($r->pool, $time);

       Use the time the request has started, custom format and don't convert
       to GMT:

         my $fmt = "%a, %D %H:%M:%S %Z";
         $fmtdate = Apache2::Util::ht_time($r->pool, $r->request_time, $fmt, 0);
