I've attached the file. Here is how to install it:

Get to the $(MWL_ROOT)/lib/exec directory. Move the wml_p1_ipp file to
another filename, say wml_ip_ipp-orig. Then copy the attached file into
wml_p1_ipp. But this is not enough because of the changes made for your
system by the makefile. Open both of the files in an editor and take the
first 16 lines from the original file and use them to replace the first 16
lines in the new file. (This is specifically getting your path to perl used
on line one and two and your WML specific Perl library directories.)
Remember to make sure the new has the correct permissions. Now everything is
set to go.

Because this directly replaces the installation file, running another "make"
or "make install" will overwrite this. Yes, call me lazy for not modifying
the source file used by the makefile.

I agree. I am not going to spend any more time modifying the internals
before checking with him. I read the post in the archives about WML 2.0
being much more efficient. Ralf, what's the latest status on WML 2.0? When
is it expected?
