I assumed the VMS format would have been appropriate, being this is a VMS
platform. I will put it in a file you can read with notepad.

I assumed that if the server uses mod perl, it uses mod_cache.  There does not
seem to be any reference to cache in the httpd.conf.  As usual, the information
for the VMS platform is hard to find!

The http cache-control, the text which preceeds the <HTML> tags, would affect
the either the server cache-control or the browser cache-control.  I assumed
that if either of these two cache were the source of the newline character
being inserted, then I could turn off this undesirable newline.  It has not
been the case.

Agreed. The endpoints, server/client,  are the places I tend to check first.  I
don't know where else I should be checking.

The html help for httpd has ""
I just assumed that this was the latest and greatest. But for VMS, V2.0, must
be the latest version.

No.  We have Apache only installed the VMS hosts.  This is where we want it
