Chapter 11. C API Reference Guide, Part II

The previous chapter covered the common parts of the C API, including the core routines for handling requests, manipulating tables, and managing memory. This chapter begins with a comprehensive guide to implementing configuration directives in C. It then turns to less essential parts of the API, including utility routines for parsing, routines for handling files, and functions for constructing and parsing URIs.

This chapter also covers several of the more esoteric aspects of the C API, such as the interface to the MD5 digest function and techniques for opening pipes to subprocesses.
