They are not misdirected links, they point to a servlet that processes
an input file (which it knows how to find from the filename) and
generates some output.

Well, I tried it, and it didn't work.
ReplaceRules replace "/usr/web/htdocs/.*" "http://host/cgi-bin/concordance/"
% swish-e -c ./Spex.conf -v
% swish-e -f Spex.swish -w Resource
230 /usr/web/htdocs/Project/Resource_Loader/Viewpoint/0000001b.html "0000001b.html" 1978
162 /usr/web/htdocs/Project/Resource_Loader/Viewpoint/0000001a.html "0000001a.html" 2437
Instead of what I expected, which is:
230 http://host/cgi-bin/concordance/0000001b.html "0000001b.html" 1978
162 http://host/cgi-bin/concordance/0000001a.html "0000001a.html" 2437
Does anyone know how to get the desired behavior?
