OSU directory README
This directory contains selected OSU (DECthreads) server (v3.6 package) scripts and other resources (see copyright.txt), without source-code modification (except for minor HTML documentation and other configuration). These scripts are supported using WASD's DECnet scripting environment (see the Scripting Environment chapter on DECnet and OSU). Other information on OSU scripting may be obtained from

A proxy entry similar to the following is a minimum requirement.


When the server is configured to support OSU scripts the following provide a basis for testing and demonstration.

OSU (via DECnet)Description
TESTCGI.C Simple test of the OSU CGI environment.
Simple POST test of the OSU environment.
TESTFORM.HTML An OSU document testing SET_DCL_ENV.C and CGI-MAILTO.C (the latter requires specific configuration!)
TMAIL.HTML Another OSU document, demonstrating the use of TMAIL.C
HELPGATE This script provides access to VMS Help libraries, in a similar fashion to WASD's own Conan The Librarian. For this script to behave itself properly it really should own the "/help" path via a mapping rule!
WebBook WebBook is a Bookreader emulator similar to WASD's HyperReader (some of these may not work for local environment reasons).
PREPROC.HTMLX The OSU document demonstrating the use of OSU's SSI processor. Some paths have been modified for WASD's directory structure. The ACCESSES.PERMISSIONS (read this file) may need to be modified for this to work on any particular site.
PREPROC2.HTMLX Same as above, with the accesses disabled. (A minor correction, not modification, was needed to the source code for it to work at all  ;^)

Of course standard CGI scripts may also be transparently executed within the DECnet environment. Here is a sample ...
