Subject Getting started with CouchDB.
Date Sun, 12 Jul 2009 20:41:36 GMT

I do a good deal of database programming - very little web programming.  
Am interested in CouchDB's database capabilities (as opposed to its
web interface which is what's perhaps hanging me up at the moment).

After I'd figured out a thing or two, successfully did the windows 
install from here:

(thanx to whoever created it - it works well).

So I can go to futon and create databases, documents, etc.

Then tried this 15-minute tutorial:

It seems to have worked up till #6.  #6 is where you query from 
_design/render over to the ID of the document you created previously trying
to invoke the 'greetings' property.  In my case that would be:


This fails with, as best I've been able to format it, the trace that 

                     \"Mozilla\/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; 
rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko\/20090708 Mozilla\/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; 
en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko\/20090407 Minefield\/3.6a1pre 
AutoPager\/ (http:\/\/\/)\"},

The function would appear to be mal-formed and while I've tried all 
kinds of possibilities for rewriting it, I continue to get the above trace.

I don't think the problem is browser dependent but tried two version of 
FF as well as IE 7.  And no go.  (one version, above, has AutoPager - the
other version does not).

Hope someone has some idea of what I might be doing wrong.
