[REBOL] Re: AW: Re:Trying to get Rebol CGI working on my website

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 20-Mar-2003 12:04

The shebang line is not interpreted by rebol, so the path should be in a format understood by the server. Rebol has nice platform-independant paths, but the server may not. Rebol only starts interpreting at the rebol header: rebol [ ... ] As far as I know, only rebol uses the path notation where the root directory is specified by a leading slash. If you try that on windows, you will get an error. It doesn't help that apache gives you a very generic error message on such a common error, but there you are. By the way, apache probably translates forward slashes to backslashes for you, doing some of the work supporting the underlying OS path notation. This might seem rebolish to you, but it is not rebol doing this. Anton.
