       Apache::XMLRPC -	serve XML-RPC requests from Apache

	  ##  Directives for your Apache config	file.
	  <Location /RPC2>
	     SetHandler	perl-script
	     PerlHandler Apache::XMLRPC
	     PerlSetVar	XMLRPC_Config /usr/local/apache/xml-rpc/services

	  ##  In the 'services'	file referenced	above by 'XMLRPC_Config'
	  sub foo {

	  sub bar {

	  $map = {
	     foo   => \&foo,
	     bar   => \&bar,


       Apache::XMLRPC serves Userland XML-RPC requests from Apache/mod_perl
       using the Frontier::RPC2	module.

       Configuring Apache::XMLRPC to work under	mod_perl is a two step
       process.	 First,	you must declare a "<Location>"	directive in your
       Apache configuration file which tells Apache to use the content handler
       found in	the Apache::XMLRPC module and defines a	variable which tells
       the module where	to find	your services.	Then, you must define the

   Apache Configuration
       Apache configuration is as simple as the	"<Location>" directive shown
       in the synopsis above.  Any directive allowed by	Apache inside a
       "<Location>" block is allowed here, but the three lines shown above are
       required.  Pay close attention to the 'PerlSetVar XMLRPC_Config ...'
       line as this is where you tell Apache where to find your	services.
       This file may reside anywhere accessable	by Apache.

   Defining Services
       To actually define the XML-RPC routines that will be served, they must
       reside in the file referenced by	the 'PerlSetVar	XMLRPC_Config ...'
       directive in the	Apache configuration file.  In this file you may place
       as many Perl subroutines	as you like, but only those which are
       explicitly published will be available to your XML-RPC clients.

       To publish a subroutine,	it must	be included in the hash	reference
       named $map (the hash reference must have	this name as this is the
       variable	that the Apache::XMLRPC	passes to Frontier::RPC2::serve	to
       actually	service	each request) The hash reference must be defined in
       this "services" file.

       The keys	of the hash are	the service names visible to the XML-RPC
       clients while the hash values are references to the subroutines you
       wish to make public.  There is no requirement that the published
       service names match those of their associated subroutines, but it does
       make administration a little easier.
