To parse the libapreq headers into xsbuilder/tables:

        % perl ../../build/xsbuilder.pl run

To build the xs/ directory and configure the tests:

        % perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apache2/bin/apxs        

To run the test suite:

        % make test




DEVELOPER NOTES

APR::Request::* should be a simple translation of the apreq C API:

apreq_handle_t -> APR::Request-derived instance.
apreq_module_t -> APR::Request-derived class.
apreq_param_t  -> APR::Request::Param
apreq_cookie_t -> APR::Request::Cookie
apreq_parser_t -> APR::Request::Parser (todo)
apreq_hook_t   -> APR::Request::Hook (todo)

Apache2::Request @ISA=(Apache2::RequestRec, APR::Request::Apache2)

  ctor:
    new

  methods:
    instance           (deprecated, ok to remove this)
    disable_uploads

  2.04-deltas:
    env() removed
    params() method inherited from APR::Request; not deprecated anymore.
    parms() removed
    status() removed.
    args() needs to become Apache2::RequestRec::args!!!
    The args() change probably deserves a runtime warning in 2.05-dev.
