replace File::LibMagic by LWP::MediaTypes

add index.html to paths is not equal: m{/$} or m{\..*?$}

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

serve_static( $cgi, $base )

Takes a reference to the CGI object and a document root path, and tries to serve a static file. Returns 0 if the file does not exist, returns 1 on success.

This method sets the Date and Last-Modified HTTP headers when sending a response for a valid file. Further to this, the method supports clients which send an If-Modified-Since HTTP header in the request, it will return a 304 Not Modified response if the file is unchanged. See RFC-2616 for full details.

If the client makes a HEAD request then no message body will be returned in the response.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

Bugs or wishlist requests should be submitted via http://rt.cpan.org/

DEPENDENCIES

The LWP::MediaTypes module is used to detect the MIME-type of a file. The URI::Escape module is used for URI handling. The HTTP::Date module is used to format the timestamp in the Last-Modified HTTP header.
