Oh, I am actually a Linux user, too -- since 1998. This computer
of mine has both Windows ME and SuSE 7.2, which I like a lot.
And I might have carried this little test out using Linux, of course.
But for some reason I started testing with Windows as I thought
that the whole thing would be straightforward. My little project's
goal is to execute a binary generated from a Fortran-77 code,
read its outputs and have them formatted web-wise, I mean, as
a web page someone somewhere would browse. The plan is to
achieve that by means of Python CGI scripts. Things are going to
get easier (I hope!) now that I learnt how to run a process with
Python. I even opened a Zope account to carry these tests out,
but Zope turned out to be more complicated at this point in time
than installing Apache on my computer and testing the scripts in a

Yes, that is true. Linux is not only smooth, it is rock-solid as
well. It is difficult to get rid of Windows ME entirely, however.
By the way, I've had lots of problems with Windows ME
lately -- I'd gladly relinquish using Windows if I could.
Thanks again for all the help.
