[BUG REPORT] WML 1.7.2, Linux RH 6.0


Package: WML 1.7.2
Operating System: Linux RH 6.0

Problem Description:
| I have just used three wonderful software packages:
| mod_ssl
| mod_rewrite
| wml
| And they were all written by you!
| I am incredibly impressed.
| I ended up writing my own version of wmk because
| I had trouble getting %DIR and -DIMG~image
| to both work at the same time.  I also cache the
| .wmlrc files (perhaps you do to, I didn't check).
| Instead of effectively doing a cd to the directory
| where the target .wml file resides, I run wml from
| the top level directory in order for %BASE to work
| properly in:
| --outputfile=FACULTYuUNDEF:/home/ssl-httpd/%DIR/%BASE.html
|      --outputfile=PUBLICuUNDEF:/home/httpd/%DIR/%BASE.html
| I found that I wanted a little more control over
| where the output files go and also which output
| files to create.
| I also added a bit of a kludge that defined
| BASE_NAME and REL_PATH variables.  This allowed
| me to get rid of most of my lower level .wmlrc
| files.  My ideal is to have no repeated info in
| the .wml source tree.  This now works.
| I do not check file timestamps right now.  I think
| that can be done by having mkwml read the .wmlrc
| files to figure out both the destination files
| and the dates of the files on the include path.
| I will probably add some top level directives to
| give better control over which sets of output files
| get created.  I already use REs to pick which files
| in the source tree to work on.  By working out of
| the top level directory I can use the Tab key in
| bash to easily pick the set of files to compile.
| It could just be me, but I find that always running
| wml from the top level directory makes more sense.
| I'd be glad to send you my mkwml program.  It is
| very crude but it  works for me.
| Your software is beautiful.  You get my vote for the
| world's best progammer.
| Thanks -- Jim Bowlin
