 Description 
 =========== 

 The setenv module allows influencing the environment external applications are spawned in and the response headers the server sends to the clients. 

 Automatic Decompression 
 ----------------------- 

 If you have alot text-files compressed with gzip on disk and want that the browser is decompressing them  
 on retrival you can use setenv to inject the Content-Encoding header: :: 

   $HTTP["url"] =~ "(README|ChangeLog|\.txt)\.gz$" { 
     setenv.add-response-header    = ( "Content-Encoding" => "gzip") 
     mimetype.assign = ("" => "text/plain" ) 
   } 


 Options 
 ======= 

 setenv.add-environment 
   adds a value to the process environment that is passed to the external applications :: 

     setenv.add-environment = (  
       "TRAC_ENV" => "lighttpd", 
       "RAILS_ENV" => "production" 
     ) 

 


 setenv.add-response-header 
   adds a header to the HTTP response sent to the client :: 
 
     setenv.add-response-header = ( 
       "Content-Encoding" => "gzip"  
     ) 

 setenv.add-request-header 
   adds a header to the HTTP request that was received from the client :: 

     setenv.add-request-header = ( 
       "X-Proxy" => server.name 
     )
