Thanks Poul - any chance of any example of how to do this with a regular 
expression: we currently have:
set obj.http.Location = "http://" req.http.host "/" 
but we only want the \1 lowercased -I've got to
set obj.http.Location = "http://" req.http.host "/" 
str[255];str=\1;for (i=0;str[i];i++) { str[i]=tolower(str[i]);return 
but that doesn't seem to work. I don't suppose you can point me in the 
right direction (it's been over 10 years since I've done C [since then 
C++, C#.Net, PHP, Perl and Java: so remembering what's valid syntax is 
bad enough, and I've got no idea about the passing to/from varnish side 
of things).

Thank you,
