Hi all.

I have started to write a complete reference to all modules available in

It is a simple cut and paste from Nginx source code; I have tried to
document the type of modules available and their relations.

I hope that this will help to solve some of the confusion about Nginx
As an example, the Google Perftools *is not* an HTTP module; and the
"main" module (as documented in the wiki) is actually several modules.

The document can be found here

The source (in reStructuredText format):

* additional HTTP modules
* mail modules
