DACS_PRENV(8)              DACS Web Services Manual              DACS_PRENV(8)



NAME
       dacs_prenv - CGI program that displays its environment

SYNOPSIS
       dacs_prenv [-html]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of the DACS suite. It is a stand-alone program
       that neither accepts the usual DACS command line options (dacsoptions)
       nor accesses any DACS configuration files.

       This CGI utility simply prints its command line arguments, all
       environment variables, information about the system on which it is
       running, and CGI parameters and their values. It can be a useful tool
       when debugging web services.

           Tip
           This program can be a useful tool for debugging web services.
           Replace a call to your web service with an identical call to
           dacs_prenv to see what arguments your web service is being passed
           and (to some extent) other context.

OPTIONS
       dacs_prenv recognizes these command line flags:

       -html
           Selects HTML output (text/html) instead of the default Content-Type
           of text/plain, by default, using the style sheet dacs_prenv.css[1].

   Web Service Arguments
       When used as a web service, the following parameters are recognized:

       FORMAT
           At present, the only recognized value for this argument is HTML.

       just_dump_stdin
           If the value of QUERY_STRING is exactly jump_dump_stdin, then the
           program will simply copy its standard input to the standard output
           as text/plain.

FILES
       dacs_prenv.css[1]

DIAGNOSTICS
       The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.

BUGS
       It should be possible to request XML output.
