Subject Fwd: SGI has problems with CGI frollowing .14 -> 1.0.0 upgrade
Date Mon, 01 Jan 1996 18:58:26 GMT
Ack sent:

I also mentioned:
 
1)      *not* stripping httpd using sgi's strip (already come across 
        a problem along these lines)
2)      a million and one little changes to other parts of the UNIX 
        realestate can break cgi.  I'm trying to nail Nick's problem down 
        to being Apache specific.
 
He'll get back to us with more info.

Ay.
