The "test-http" command:
Works like the http command but gives setup permission to all users, or whatever permission is described by "--usercap CAP".
This command can used for interactive debugging of web pages. For example, one can put a simple HTTP request in a file like this:
echo 'GET /timeline' >request.txt
Then run (in a debugger) a command like this:
fossil test-http --debug <request.txt
This command is also used internally by the "ssh" sync protocol. Some special processing to support sync happens when this command is run and the SSH_CONNECTION environment variable is set. Use the --test option on interactive sessions to avoid that special processing when using this command interactively over SSH. A better solution would be to use a different command for "ssh" sync, but we cannot do that without breaking legacy.
- Do not do special "sync" processing when operating over an SSH link
- Trace TH1 execution (for debugging purposes)
- CAP User capability string (Default: "sxy")
