Windows 98
This works with Linux and AIX Apaches.
When using the '#!' line for a CGI script, with Windows 98 the first line is ALSO
passed to the Script Interpreter.  This is OK for Perl and Csh, etc. where # starts a
comment line.

>From the error.log file:

[Wed Dec 08 15:51:56 1999] [error] [client] Premature end of scr
ipt headers: c:/program files/apache group/apache/cgi-bin/wvwcgi.rex

[Wed Dec 08 15:51:56 1999] [error] [client] Error 13.1:  Incorre
ct character in program "#" ('23'X)

Where wvwcgi.rex is:

/*  Magic does NOT work  12/8/99  */
  Say "Content-type: text/html"
  Say ""
  Say "This CGI script works!  Object Rexx";
Yes, but the Web client will only show the "Internal Server Error" -- it's the 
error.log file that shows the error.
Windows Apache handling of the '#!' line should bypass that line also.
