Hello all,

I am looking for a way to do two things in particular.  The first is the be
able to have a way to direct HTTP POST's to a program's stdin with
arguments and to then take its stdout and put that back in the stream being
uploaded, and then to apply this to a flex/bison program or module.  This
is to handle 300GB files without saving them to disk, but still getting the
important information out of them.  Having the general stdin/stdout part is
also because I think this should be more generalized for uploads and
downloads in general so things like streaming video become less of a

Apache does not have their modules set up in such a way as to feasibly do
this without a whole new major revision.  Looking at nginx, it looks closer
but I'm still not expert enough to know without help.
