#! /bin/sh read get docid echo "<TITLE>$docid</TITLE>" echo Here is the dataThe docid may have a trailing carriage return to be stripped off on some systems. You can modify that script to produce the data you actually want. The HTML syntax for marked-up text is fairly simple, but if you want just to send plain text, then just send the .PLAINTEXT.tag first:
#! /bin/sh read get docid sed -f txt2html.sed $docidor in csh
#! /bin/csh request = ( `echo $<`) if ($#request <2) exit sed -f txt2html.sed $requestWhen you have written your script, set the execute bit and then configure the inet daemon to run it . A few more examples:
