To add to what Pauolo is saying.... I believe that Apache is the webserver for the majority of Server hosting CGI applications. I do most of my work on Linux now, but I worked with PWS on Win NT for some time. It was easy to configure, and had the advantage of not having to resolve the issue of having one path to the rebol binary on one's desktop and a different path to the binary on the server. Using the PWS with the registry made that problem moot. And there is no way (that I know of) to make a symbolic link on Window$.... -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]> "My shroe, my shroe, my dingkom for a shroe!" --TheManWhoSpeaksInAnagrams (Monty Python)
