  39 +RUNNING PERL 6 NOVEMBER
  40 +-----------------------
  41 +
  42 +* From the command line
  43 +
  44 + First set the PARROT_PATH variable to the path of your parrot directory.
  45 +
  46 + This will generate the Main_Page on STDOUT:
  47 +
  48 + $ ./test_wiki.sh
  49 +
  50 + To specify which page to view you need to specify the get paramters on the
  51 + command line like this:
  52 +
  53 + $ ./test_wiki.sh 'action=view&page=Main_Page'
  54 +
  55 + You can actually skip the 'action=view' part since viewing is the default
  56 + action.
  57 +
  58 + The other actions we have so far are edit, log_in and log_out.
  59 +
  60 +* On a webbserver
  61 +
  62 + We have only tested it on Apache. You need to put these files and
  63 + directories in the cgi-bin directory of apache:
  64 +
  65 + wiki.sh
  66 + wiki
  67 + skin/
  68 + HTML
  69 + CGI.pm
  70 + Impatience.pm
  71 + data/
  72 +
  73 + And make sure that the files and directories below data are readable and
  74 + writable by the webbserver. Also, if you want a pretty wiki you need to copy
  75 + these files into the root of your webbserver
  76 +
  77 + skin/spartan.css
  78 + skin/november-logo.png
  79 +
  80 + No, we are not kidding, this will change though.
  81 +
  82 + Edit the file wiki.sh and update the PARROT_PATH variable.
  83 +
  84 + After this, you can direct your browser to the wiki, probably the URL will
  85 + be something on the lines of:
  86 +
  87 + http://localhost/cgi-bin/wiki.sh
