Subject [PATCH] Win32 Script Interpreter Source
Date Mon, 01 Feb 1999 15:57:56 GMT
This patch introduces a new Win32 specifc config. directive to direct
Apache to optionally search the Win32 registry for the interpreter to
run scripts with.  The default is to peek the shebang (!#) line at the
beginning of the script. The directive is:


It takes a single argument, either "registry" or "shebang" (unquoted, of

ap_call_exec() in the Win32 path has been simplified and cleaned up a
bit. If a registry search fails, the code will peek the shebang (and
issue an informational  message that the registry search failed).  I
have a couple of ideas on how to make 16-bit CGI's work; all are hacks
and are not included with this patch. I'm inclined to say we just don't
support them.

I'm looking for comments and suggestions.
