Oh, you are right.  Thanks.

Can you test by changing it to:

 process_request() unless $ENV{MOD_PERL};

and see if that also fixes it?  The script is suppose to be able to run
under mod_perl or CGI.

In the search.cgi example max_chars is not used.  In the template:

   [% item.Property('swishdescription') || "No description" | highlight('swishdefault') %]

is suppose to filter the property and limit the description based on the
settings at the top of the program.

a file and use that at a starting point.

It works like this:  The program (search.cgi or swish.cgi) set up data
structures and pass those to the template.  The template can only use
what's provided to it by the program.  So you can't use a template from
swish.cgi (i.e. with search.cgi.

It's very unfortunate the way I named those files. was
around long before search.cgi. should have been named  Maybe it should be renamed with a big fat warning the the
