Re: no files being indexed using http,,,,,

I'm running ActiveState-5.6.0 for Win32 on NT 4.0. 

The version of swish-e that I have installed is 1.3.2.

Bill, those ppm commands are responding just like you mention below. Does 
this mean that I have the necessary LWP modules?

I have Perl installed and configured properly on my machine. I'm getting
the same results when I try to build the http index. You mentioned
something about LWP and some other support modules. What is LWP (and the
support modules) and where can I download these? 


On NT4?  Which perl are you running?  If you have the Activestate
installation of Perl, then you use the Perl Package Manager to install
most packages.  See for a list of
packages available.

But I think LWP is installed by default with the current Activestate's
Perl.  But I'm not sure since I don't use it.  Let's see:


PPM interactive shell (2.1.2) - type 'help' for available commands.

PPM> query www

libwww-perl [5.48] Library for WWW access in Perl

PPM> quit


I don't remember installing it, but that was a while back.

C:\WINDOWS\Desktop>perl -v

This is perl, v5.6.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread

(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

The module list Chris Blackstone posted is for the development version
spider (although some of those are required for the 1.3.x version
swishspider, too).  I doubt you are running the development version on
NT, right?
