I want to create files (and put HTML in them) only using a .htaccess file (before you flame me with questions about why on earth I'd like to do that: it's just for fun, for a hack, not for any real production use).

Is that possible?

I think I could use the mod_ext_filter module with the ExtFilterDefine directive and then just call some standard UNIX commands (correct?), but is there some way that doesn't involve external commands, but standard directives instead?

Not even using ExtFilterDefine? – Peter Jaric Apr 26 '12 at 10:59
@PeterJaric No - that directive is only valid in the server context, not .htaccess. – Shane Madden Apr 26 '12 at 16:26
