[REBOL] Re: ARRG...IIS/PWS - Help configuring erebol

From: cybarite:sympatico:ca at: 17-Feb-2002 9:34

Hi Gavin, This might just annoy you .... so if it does just ignore it. I have seen dozens of questions about the challenges that you are facing on this list. What I am missing is why run IIS when you can run the Xitami server and avoid this stuff? The only answer I have come to so far that makes any sense is that your employer has decreed using IIS so you are running this server at your corporate address. I put a rebol script in my cgi directory including stuff like #! c:\Rebol\View\rebol.exe -cs REBOL [] print "Content-Type: text/html^/" ;-- Required Page Header Because of the #!, I can call this script any file name extension I like and don't have to make an association between this extension and launching REBOL. One option is to call it .htm so it looks like a simple page fetch. Or any other extension like .jsp .pl if that is what makes people feel comfortable. Sorry if this is too obvious or well known. I just know that I tried IIS / PWS as well and spent a lot of hours on it. It was champagne opening time when I got it to work. But since I went to Xitami and REBOL I have not had one of these "*sigh*". No reply is needed ... just Sunday morning coffee pondering.
