Hello group.

I have read through most messages in the archive.  I still have not
been successful in getting a script to run.  Here is my script:

sun032% cat /homes/wtruitt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/WWW/cgi-bin/howdy.cgi
#!/TOOLS/bin/perl
 
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
 
print "<html>\n";
print "<head>\n";
print "<title>Hello world with Perl</title>\n";
print "</head>\n";
print "<body>\n";
print "<h1>Hello world with Perl</h1>\n";
print "<p>Howdy, world!</p>\n";
print "</body>\n";
print "</html>\n";

-----
When I run it from the prompt it prints out the stuff like you would
expect.

sun032% /homes/wtruitt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/WWW/cgi-bin/howdy.cgi
Content-type: text/html
 
<html>
<head>
<title>Hello world with Perl</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello world with Perl</h1>
<p>Howdy, world!</p>
</body>
</html>

-----
OK, so following the directions, 
1) I made the script and put it under the WWW/cgi-bin directory. 
2) browser -> http://sun032.atm.dsccc.com:8080/Admin/Editor/cgi-bin
3) follow link -> AddingResources
4)   name: mycgitest
5)  class: w3c.jigsaw.forms.CgiResource
6) click ok
7) follow link -> ExistingResources
8) follow link -> mycgitest
9) in command, type ->
/homes/wtruitt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/WWW/cgi-bin/howdy.cgi
(with the return after just in case)
10) in generates form -> false
(I tried both, but anyways)

11) now browser ->
http://sun032.atm.dsccc.com:8080/cgi-bin/mycgitest

<h1>Document not found</h1><p>The document /cgi-bin/mycgitest is
indexed but not available.<p>The server is misconfigured.

----
So anyways, I know it finds it and all, it just doesn't run it the
way I expect.

Also, whats the way to subscribe?

Thanks,

Walter
