Libwww & NT problems - something is working



Thanks, Henrik, for your comments. Today I downloaded the 4.0 version and got
something working on NT (see below), but problems still remain.

First, there are now 16 DLL's (there were 12 in 4.0 Alpha 6) that have to be
made in this order:
wwwdll
wwwutils
wwwcore
wwwcache
wwwmime
wwwhttp
wwwmlgen
wwwrules
wwwhtml (! new dll, not in Alpha 6 release, goes before wwwnews)
wwwnews
wwwdir
wwwfile
wwwftp
wwwgopher
wwwguess
wwwapp
(a http-link to section that I thought would describe this on the W3 server
is bad).
No errors in making, just some warnings that don't seem too bad
(MSVC++ 2.0 compiler).

I got the libapp_3 program to work, but it needs the _CONSOLE #define in
the Makefile Settings of all DLL's. This #define is not in the makefiles after
unzipping the sources. (Without _CONSOLE libapp_3 crashes because TTYPrint
is the null pointer, in HTSaveLocally()).

Using libapp_3 I can now download a page from our local network using libapp_3,
but outside gives still problems:

Q: Can I simply set a proxy using "set http_proxy=<address>:<port> 
   and then access outside pages as well, or does it need programming ?

This test program still crashes at the same spot though (HTFWriter_write()
in HTFWrite.c, but this works fine on Sun and SGI, fwrite() crashes).

End of november I could access some mailing group via the W3 pages, but 
yesterday I could not find it anymore. Instead I found this mailing group.
