How do you execute shell scripts in Mosaic......????????

Tue, 24 May 94 14:53 BST


Has anyone managed to execute a shell script from a hypertext link in
a html style document within mosaic. I understand it is possible, from the notes
I have seen on this matter I have changed the following files:

added the following to the .mailcap file
application/x-csh; csh -f %s

the following is included in the mime.types file
application/x-csh csh

I have made the above changes and it does not work. I have the added constraint
in that I am not using a http server, our network is strictly internal.
When you want to execute a shell script do you use a normal hypertext link, ie
use the href="filename" command?

Any advice would be most welcome.
