Hi James,

Well...My path is
/usr/local/aol32/bin/nsd -t /usr/local/aol32/nsp-trainee.tcl

And my output to this path: -
[24/Apr/2003:14:28:34] [21207.1024] [-main-]Notice:nsd.tcl starting to read nsd.tcl config file...
[24/Apr/2003:14:29:45] [21027:1024] [-main-]Notice: finished reading config file.

I have been asked to try a simple program to addd two numbers using:

I was also told that .adp files begin with <%..%>..Is it just adding these<%....Normal HTML coding.....%> thats all?? or any other issues as well??

I need to create a directory(which i already have!!) /web/nsp-trainee/www/study and then store all my programs in this directory...

You also said: The directory you save your
html file in is platform and configuration specific...
I told you that my platform is Linux and the configuration for AolWebServer is 3.2 and the Tclversion is 8.3

Now pls further advice on these queries....Thanks agn in advance,

By platform specific, I meant that sometimes people place their files in different places even among the various Linux distributions.

By configuration specific, I meant it depends on what is in your config file.  Can you post the contents of /usr/local/aol32/nsp-trainee.tcl ?

Before you start on your adding program, you should check that AOLserver is serving plain pages properly.  Put a simple html document named test.html in /web/nsp-trainee/www/study  The URL you use to see that file in MSIE depends on the name of your machine and the contents of /usr/local/aol32/nsp-trainee.tcl but will be something like http://yourmachine/study/test.html

If that works, then you can start writing your program.  See for information on adp page syntax and examples.
