Re: swish-e 2.4 | 2.5 under Windows

hello list,

the trouble with apache hanging during dumps to STDERR is likely related 
to my win98 or apache installation, or both - I already gave up on this

just summary if someone comes across the same:
in xitami webserver the "print STDERR Dumper($results)" works, in my 
apache 1.3.1 or 1.3.31 not (from version of swish-e greater than 2.2.3). 
tested with perl 5.6 and 5.8 on Win98SE

the path in config, however, must be unix-style - neither Xitami, nor 
Apache, nor command line running swish.cgi worked with  'c:/romca....'

I did not believe it (and it took quite a lot of time to find), but I 
really can not use c:/ - so, my machine is probably in a very strange 
condition, what a surprise


examples of some config opts i tried
return {
	title			=> 'Fau2 romca search',
	#swish_binary => '/romca/swish5/swish-e.exe',				# OK v2.5.4
	#swish_binary => '/romca/swish-e/swish-e.exe',        # OK v2.4.3
	#swish_binary => 'c:/romca/swish5/swish-e.exe',        # result: Apache 
-> Service currently unavailable, Xitami -> the page timed out
	swish_index => 'c:/romca/regcat/index/uhm.swish-e'  ,
	template => {			
             package     => 'SWISH::TemplateDefault',
	use_library => 0,   #1
	#debug_options => 'dump',      #OK with Xitami, not with *my 
installation* of apache
