rp_internal_redirect (public)

 rp_internal_redirect [ -absolute_path ] path

Defined in packages/acs-tcl/tcl/request-processor-procs.tcl

Tell the request processor to return some other page. The path can either be relative to the current directory (e.g. "some-template") relative to the server root (e.g. "/packages/my-package/www/some-template"), or an absolute path (e.g. "/home/donb/openacs-4/templates/some-cms-template"). When there is no extension then the request processor will choose the matching file according to the extension preferences. Parameters will stay the same as in the initial request. Keep in mind that if you do an internal redirect to something other than the current directory, relative links returned to the clients browser may be broken (since the client will have the original URL). Use rp_form_put or rp_form_update if you want to feed query variables to the redirected page.

-absolute_path (boolean) (optional)
If set the path is an absolute path within the host filesystem
path - path to the file to serve
