OSR5 FAQ


Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

© December 2003 (various)

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

How do I access the SCO Unix online docs from a browser?

Point your browser at port 457, and ask for document dochome.html. For example, if your server is server.foo.com, use the URL http://server.foo.com:457/dochome.html

You don't have access to the search tools this way, but you can simulate that with the following cgi-bin script.


#!/bin/sh
# @(#) nftpsearch - wrapper for simple form access to scohelp search engine 
# call without QUERY_STRING set html form, with QUERY_STRING for search
# relies on single Form search field called query
#
# Install as:  /var/scohttp/cgi-bin/nftsearch.sh  on OSR5.0.[024] systems.
# Access via:  URL:<http://localhost:457/cgi-bin/nftsearch.sh> (any browser)

if [ -z "$QUERY_STRING" ] ; then 

HELP_SVR="http://localhost:457"            # YOUR HELP SERVER system
SCRIPT="$HELP_SVR/cgi-bin/nftsearch.sh"    # cgi-bin path of this script

cat <<EOF

exit 0

eval $QUERY_STRING

export QUERY_STRING
