Ispell path for W2Kby Mission (Hermit)
|on Jun 17, 2002 at 14:44 UTC||Need Help??|
Mission has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
The server is a W2K (with IIS turned off), running Apache instead, and ActiveState Perl 5.6.1 Also installed is CYGWIN (a Unix emmulator for Win environment) and Ispell, which works from the CYGWIN window on the server.
The Basic Problem:
I'm wanting to add a Spell Check feature to a web based perl app that my team is working on. Through much reading at PM and CPAN, I decided to work with Lingua::Ispell. Ispell only works in a Unix environment, so reading off of the Ispell web page on Windows, it informs the reader that you should install CYGWIN and then install Lingua::Ispell.
Attempts To Date:
My guess to this point is that there is some kind of path issue. When I specifically map the server to my local machine, I can run Ispell without issue. As soon as I switch the path back to the server and run the test script from the server I get the error: The system cannot find the path specified.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. TIA.
