Description is a HFPM module that sets given field(s) or environmental variable(s) to the value of the "REMOTE_HOST" environmental variable if available otherwise to the "REMOTE_ADDR" environmental variable.

Usage {$field | envvar | %envvar} in the pipeline.

Usage Explanation

The fields and environmental variables are set to the value of the "REMOTE_HOST" or "REMOTE_ADDR" environmental variable. If none are specified, then the environmental variable "rhost" is used as the destination.

A '$' prefix means a field destination and a '%' prefix indicates the destination is an environmental variable, which is the default.

Examples $afield %var h
sets the field "afield" and the environmental variables "var" and "h" to the user's host.
sets the environmental variable "rhost" to the "REMOTE_HOST" or "REMOTE_ADDR" environmental variable.
