> The project is aimed at creating a prototype for a new version of mod_rivet, a module
embedding the Tcl scripting language in the Apache HTTP web server. Current version of mod_rivet
supports only the prefork MPM of httpd, thus confining the module within the domain of Unix-like
systems and, even in that case, putting a constraint on the httpd configuration. Embedding
Tcl in a threaded environment has some critical issues to deal with since a Tcl interpreter
can not be shared among threads. A reference solution to the problem is implemented in mod_perl
where a separate pool of threads is managed. Basically the project has to explore the possibility
of implementing such a solution for mod_rivet too. The project output should be a prototype
on which we could proceed with the refactoring of current mod_rivet code
