You know, I think, that I may tend to ramble in these posts, doing my
thinking as I type. I know I said elsewhere in that post, that the caret
means whatever comes right after the hostname and port - mea culpa if I
caused any confusion by my idle thoughts!!

Your examples are helpful, of course, and much appreciated.

Cheers
Vern

Superfluous? With the caret, this will match:

http://host:port/imageserver/whateverelse

Without the caret that'll _still_ match. Maybe that's why you think it's
superfluous?

However, without the caret, this would _also_ match (with the caret, it
won't):

http://host:port/foo/bar/imageserver/whateverelse

The caret means "at the start". Without the caret, it doesn't matter
where "/imageserver/" appears in the URL... it doesn't have to be at
the beginning, because Vern didn't use a caret.

Whether that makes the caret "superfluous" depends on what other URLs
the site uses, I guess.


The URL for the above could be

http://ourIPaddress:port/imageserver/vernspgm?name=vern&date=11/22/2009
Gosh, I hope you aren't really doing HTTP by IP address. Yuck, spit,
blech.
