The data structure of nginx important

struct ngx_module_s {
//Ctx_index is the module counter classification, the nginx module can be divided into four types: core, event, HTTP and
//mail, Each module will each count, the ctx_index is each module numerical in its class group

//(see objs/ngx_modules.c), began to turn to each module are numbered from 0

//CTX is the module of context, different modules have different context, four kinds of module four module context, for four different structure, so the CTX is void *

//Commands is a set of instructions for each module, nginx module can achieve some custom instruction, the instruction
//Write the appropriate configuration items in the configuration file, each instruction in the source code corresponding to a ngx_command_t structure
//Variable, nginx will read module instruction out commands instruction array in module from the configuration file,
//These instructions are usually the parameter configuration of the value assigned to some program variables or between different variables associated with or
//Conversion data (such as include directive), instruction can take parameters can also be with no parameters, you can use these commands to imagine
//UNIX command line or a template language instruction.
