Hi, i'm having a problem with creating a .so library. What i have is

which my myFuncs.c file needs. Now the only wrapper that i use is located in
my main file (myFuncs.c) and when i create the .so file i don't get any display on my browser
window. I'm assuming that i need to include the other c file (myFuncs2.c) somehow when i create a

64kb code and data come to mind for old PC's or control

on large systems tend to have large overhead because
the developers have no mid sized models for development
but rather develop for larger systems. While I don't
expect a new langage would support paper tape as a I/O
device I don't see why 2 meg of kernal is needed for a
"hello world" program were a mid sized version could

The argument that Pliant will be faster than C shows a
very poor understanding of the realities of performance

http_server options

I noticed that there have been several options available in
version 44 which are no longer available in 54:

pliant module /pliant/protocol/http/server.pli command 'http_server name a_string port a_string channel
a_string protocol_level a_string root a_string public a_boolean send_software_release_number a_boolean
maximal_form_length an_integer log a_string' (from 44)

Unfortunately, I've been unable to figure out how to get rid
of the default user authorization response, since 'public'
no longer appears to be supported. Also, 'root' doesn't seem
to be supported either, and changes made to the 'root' site config
using the one-shot configuration link don't seem to work either.

Any suggestions? It would be nice if there was a resource
for all the available settings in the various .pdb files, but
I've been unable to find one.
