This is not a real error, but it took me some serious time to locate and make a work around for. I had a perfectly working Kwiki (based on 0.18) for my notes, but all of a sudden I was getting this error message on my workstation. % CGI::Kwiki CGI::Kwiki located in /Library/Perl/5.8.1 is version: 0.18 % uname -a Darwin hyperstation.local 7.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.3.0: Fri Mar 5 14:22:55 PST 2004; root:xnu/xnu-517.3.15.obj~4/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc The error message: [Tue Apr 27 09:02:28 2004] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: /Users/jonasbn/Sites/NotesWiki/index.cgi All the CGIs compiled and running them on the commandline gave HTML output on STDOUT. So the problem would have to be with the Apache, but I was perfectly able to run a helloworld CGI script living in the same directory. So I examined index.cgi - and I fell over this line: my $cgi_class = (eval { require CGI::Fast; 1 } ? 'CGI::Fast' : 'CGI'); I have earlier been experimenting with FastCGI/CGI::Fast so it is installed on my workstation, but no longer used, but apparently CGI::Kwiki lets it have higher precendence than CGI if installed. So I forced it to use CGI with the following line: $cgi_class = 'CGI'; And now everything works perfectly again. In my opinion the use of CGI::Fast should be configurable and not based on what can be located in @INC. Maybe this could go in the FAQ or documentation? Thanks for a marvellous module anyway :) jonasbn
