I coded this before, for a client, some time ago. I'm not sure if the ever
used it. The basic approach was to first set apache to use the same IP,
document root and script alias for the various different domain names. Then
the key variables, such as SERVER_NAME, were defined directly in
catalog.cfg (instead of variable.txt) with their initial values. Finally, a
block of Perl in an Autoload would examine the inbound URL modify the
values of the key catalog variables accordingly. In the case of this
client, store names, logos, order emails, and other things were dependent
on the domain name, my code did a lookup in a table that was keyed on
domain to get the other values.
I spent a bit of time looking through my archives to see if I could post it
for you, but I was unable to locate a copy, and it has been so long...
