I'm working on an Apache module for authentication using cookies. This
far I have managed to read a cookie and look up a username in a table.

"Document contains no data" and in the log file I see the value of
remote_user is "-". Would anyone familiar with writing authentication
modules like to take a look? Is there some good documentation out there
about the Apache C-API and how it all works?
I've set up a page for my new module at
