Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: error in rp_handler: can't read "tcl_url2file

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
The error happens even when DebugP or LogDebugP parameters are false. This is because the call to rp_debug forces the debug_p parameter to "t" i.e. rp_debug -debug t "error in rp_handler: $errmsg"
No, I don't think so. (Did you actually try it?) Because when the DebugP or LogDebugP parameters are false at server startup time, the rp_debug proc literally does nothing - it is defined to immediately return. From reading the code, what you are talking about with "rp_debug -debug t" only applies when NaviServer was started up with one of the DebugP or LogDebugP parameters set to true.

Btw, I don't personally like this style of conditionally defining entirely different procedure definitions. But in this case, maybe it was done for performance.

Hi Andrew

sorry I should apologise. I'm running a much older version of OpenACS where the rp_debug proc isn't defined conditionally. That explains the confusion. I should have checked that the latest version had changed.
