The request object
On receiving a client request, Woof! creates the request object, of class Request, that encapsulates various attributes and data in the request. The following objects are contained in request.
Any HTTP cookies sent in the client request can be retrieved through the cookies object. This can also be accessed in a controller context as icookies (to distinguish them from outgoing cookies ocookies.
The env object stores the environment passed in by the Web server. Generally, applications should use the methods of the request object that hide web server differences rather than directly accessing this. This can also be accessed from controller context.
The request object also has several helper methods to retrieve information about the request, such as the URL, port etc. in a web server independent manner. Refer to the API documentation for details.
