Re: Another Perl Problem

This was the problem - seems command-line programs like PERL can't see LFN
with spaces correctly. I have solved the problem by moving pi3web to my
/projects/ folder so that it has no spaces, and all mapped cgi folders to
cgi-bin/project_name and mapping them to project_name/cgi_application_name
such as cope/database. this really is powerful. I have just finished
developing the first phase of a simple PERL/CGI database application that
was taking days of uploading, checking, revising, uploading, etc, and the
cost that incurred. Wow. I also solved the .shtml index problem by making
the index.html of localhost a link to all my projects' homepages, including
.shtml ones.

I offically propose that the next revision read index.shtml as the index,

Is there anyway to have .cgi scripts execute as such in document mapped
directories? Maybe by changing mime types?

Thanks for all the help. pi3 is great!
