I have a problem with my CGI program in the Cygwin environment. I am using C
as the cgi-programming language. I am developing an application on a UNIX
platform, and I use Apache as the server. My cgi works fine in the UNIX
environment at work, but I wanted to be able to work on it at home. So I
turned to cgywin.
I have downloaded apache to my local computer, so that my PC becomes the
client and server. I have configured apache correctly, and can see some of
textfile into a file. This file is then printed out along with the HTML
headers and body etc. On the LAN at work, using UNIX, everything works
I merely copied all of the necessary files to cygwin. From cygwin, the HTML
written out - but then the output has suddenly stopped. I am fairly new to
cygwin and cgi-programming, but I believe this to be a cygwin problem -
because my application works fine in its native environment.
Could be a text/binary mode issue. Check the Cygwin documentation (FAQ/
User's Guide) and email archives for plenty of discussion about this.
If that's not it and you're still stuck, see <cygwin.com/bugs.html>.
