apache_noteGet and set apache request notes

Description

apache_note ( string $note_name , string|null $note_value = null ) : string|false

This function is a wrapper for Apache's table_get and table_set. It edits the table of notes that exists during a request. The table's purpose is to allow Apache modules to communicate.

The main use for apache_note() is to pass information from one module to another within the same request.

Parameters

note_name

The name of the note.

note_value

The value of the note.

Return Values

If note_value is omitted or null, it returns the current value of note note_name. Otherwise, it sets the value of note note_name to note_value and returns the previous value of note note_name. If the note cannot be retrieved, false is returned.

Changelog

Version Description
8.0.0 note_value is nullable now.
