Subject [PATCH]Apache 1.3.9 Port to OS/390 Unix System Services
Date Tue, 30 Nov 1999 19:59:48 GMT
> > This patch currently does not define NEED_HASHBANG_EMUL for OS/390.  I defined it
so that I could deal with the compile problems, but then I removed the define.  I could not
find any documentation that described how #! was handled on OS/390.  Can you point me somewhere?
 The two scripts in cgi-bin now work without the NEED_HASHBANG_EMUL being defined.  Is there
something that will break if we don't define it?

OK.  I'll submit a new patch that defines NEED_HASHBANG_EMUL for releases prior to V2R8 some
time today.  Thanks for the reference.
