More info on swish.cgi problem on win2k

Further to my previous post about getting a strange error running swish.cgi on win2k compared to xp, I now know that the error "The system cannot find the file specified." comes from the OS when it cannot find a file specified as the source in a redirection command "<".

This means that the options to -x are not being escaped properly by swish.cgi before hitting the OS.

As I said, the same script works fine under XP.

Has anyone else found this or have any suggestions.
