Some hints on setting hangman to work. Upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3, 1.3 uses an external word,clue file. If You edit this file using a Microsoft product, or on a DOS/WINDOWS platform, make sure You use an ASCII transfer to upload it to a UNIX server. If You are putting this file on a BSD server You may need to change the first line of the file to #!/usr/local/bin/perl The Number one reason that people have trouble running this (500 error) is a Return on the first line of the file. If You edit the source on a DOS/WINDOZE platform this will happen. A Win based editor that will allow you to get around this problem is Textpad. It has a save as UNIX Command. If You are installing the 1.3.1 or 1.3.2 beta and receive the word ERROR on Your page, You probably don't have write permissions set up correctly. Version 1.3.2 you can set $WAC=0 to get around this this. (this will allow users to cheat, though.)
