i think i understand a bit of what you're trying to do; you want a CGILua
launcher that doesn't use the requested URL to choose the script to run.
instead, you want it to always answer with the 'login' system.
you were right: the stock CGILua launcher can't do that.
but i think there's an easier way to get the same effect:
function loginHandler (req, res)
if not logged() then
req.headers ["orig_url"] = req.relpath
req.relpath = "login/login.lua"
return cgiluaHandler (req, res)
-- redirect to the 'real' servers
this way, you just modify the request and let the standard CGILua handle it
i have some ideas (no code yet) to move quite a bit of Xavante core
functionality to handlers; i think it'll let the users reorder the request
process in very flexible ways, especially around the URL parsing steps
but right now i'm writing a framework to vastly simplify writing handlers; in
some cases to one-liners... wish me luck!
