ASCIIweb 0.90

ASCIIweb is a text-to-HTML formatting system.
ASCIIweb is a text-to-HTML formatting system that uses the 'pre' tag to create ASCII art Web pages, either on-the-fly or for static retrieval.

Installing ASCIIweb is a snap. Simply download the tarball and unpack it in a directory that is web-accessible. Next, configure your web browser to allow cgi scripts (if you want to run dynamically), and set aw.cgi as a acceptable DirectoryIndex. If you are planning to utilize embedded scripts, please rename the sample scriptdir to something unique. An .htaccess file should exist there denying web users from listing the contents of the directory. If one does not exist, create one (see the sample in the tarball). Finally, load your page! If everyting is configured correctly, you should see a default ASCIIweb install. If you do not see the default ASCIIweb installation this is because of two reasons: you unpacked ASCIIweb in the wrong directory, or your web server is not properly configured.

NOTE: If you do not require ASCIIweb to run in dynamic mode, or you do not have permission to run cgi scripts in your webspace, you may install ASCIIweb anywhere you like and generate static pages which you would then copy into your website.

What's New in This Release:

This version includes a line wrapping feature.
