||A brief description of how to get WikiWikiWeb to run under Windows NT:
@echo Content-type: text/html @perl wiki.perlStrange but true. Over here running the Perl script introduces a blank line before any other output. I don't know if that's normal or not. The above batch file provides the Content-type: text/html the browser wants to see, then runs the wiki Perl script. It's odd, but it works. If anyone can tell me how to make it go away please do so. It's such a kludge!
The above set-up will leave you with a running Wiki with the <1k page size limit. Various hacks exist which have Wiki storing the database in flat files. I'm actually running a modified version of AustinDavid's modified version of WardCunningham's WikiInStraightPerl.
-- TimO'Connor (TfOc)Regarding the lack of forward-slashes under NT and other oddities. The fact is that it really is possible to use straight forward-slashes under WinNT. As much as I like CPAN, a very good choice of perl is the one from Active State ( http://www.activestate.com/ ). As for using a batch-file for running wiki.pl is not really The Right Thing - instead, create a file-association pointing .pl to the perl-intepreter. Another thing is that the perl from Active State also smoothly integrates well with Internet Information Server from microsoft. Using IIS or not using IIS is both a technical and/or political choice. Most organizations running NT also have a machine where IIS is installed...
