I found the docs here but I can't actually find rack/forward.rb anywhere. I've searched the git repo and my google-fu is failing me also.
... Sorry if his is the wrong place for this.
Those docs are real old, I need to get the current ones up somewhere.
TODO : fix docs. Will close after that's done.
cool, thanks. so is it just something that isn't supported anymore?
It's not, and likely never will be. Generic proxy implementation isn't that easy, and is better served for common use cases by the many proxy servers out there.
that's cool, I was mostly curious. I'm also wondering though if it would be nice for Rack::Request to have some kind of to_req method. ie. turn it into an appropriate Net::HTTP request object. basically this logic: https://gist.github.com/32376#L25-L31
Kinda, the problem is there's actually a lot more to getting a working proxy as a generic proxy. There are certain headers you want to strip, etc, etc.
Maybe I'll finish off my fork of that gist sometime, and clean it up. It's got some old fail in it.
cool, thanks for your time.
