       Jifty::View::Static::Handler - Jifty view handler for static files


       This is deprecated and is being port to a stack of plack middleware and plack::app::file

       This class takes care of serving out static files for a Jifty application.

       When fully operational, it will use an algorithm along the lines of the following:

       * Static files are served out of a separate root * If static files go through apache:
           * How do we merge together the N static roots?  * If static files go through
           * We need a flag to allow them to go through the dispatcher, too
           * return "True" (304) for if-modified-since
           * if the browser accepts gzipped data,
               see if we have a cached gzipped copy
                   if so, send it
               see if we have a marker indicating that gzip is a lose
                   if so, send uncompressed

               gzip the content
               send the gzipped content
            * if the browser doesn't accept gzipped content
               send the content uncompressed

       Create a new static file handler. Likely, only the "Jifty::Handler" needs to do this.

       Returns all the static roots the handler will search

   show $path
       Handle a request for $path. If we can't find a static file of that name, return undef.

   handle_request $path
       An alias for "show"

   file_path $path
       Returns the system path for $path, searching inside the application's static root, loaded
       plugins' static roots, and finally Jifty's static root.  Returns undef if it can't find
       the file in any path.

   template_exists $path
       An alias for "file_path".

   mime_type $path
       Returns the mime type of the file whose path on disk is $path. Tries to use MIME::Types to
       guess first. If that fails, it falls back to "File::MMagic".

   send_file $path $mimetype
       Print $path to STDOUT (the client), identified with a mimetype of $mimetype.

       Sends appropriate cache control and expiration headers such that the client will cache the
       content.  COMPRESSION is deprecated

       Sends a "304 Not modified" response to the browser, telling it to use a cached copy.
