Direct WAIS access support in libwww.
I've failed to utilize direct WAIS access support in libwww-5.0a
(libwww-5.1* just don't work for me on Linux --- they fail in deadloop).
HTWAIS.c in libwww-5.0a appeared to be 2 year old --- last change note
was dated by 1995, so I decided to try to adapt it to current 5.0a.
The attached file w3c-libwww-5.0a.QL.gz is the compressed diffs I've made
There was no HTWAIS.h in 5.0a at all and I just got one from libwww-5.1b.
I have not corrected autoconfiguration stuff in the top directory
(main `configure' script), as I beleived libwww maintainers knew better
how to make proper changes to it.
To include direct WAIS access stuff in libwww one should provide
`--with-wais' command line option to main libwww `configure' script
AND set CFLAGS and WAISPATH environment variables as described below:
E.g. if freeWAIS distribution is in /tmp/freeWAIS-0.5/
then one should set these variables in `configure' environment to:
Hope you will find my patch usefull and improve it.
