Subject: help with simple indexed phone book...
Status: RO

   I'm trying to get a simple phone book set up on
our WWW server. 

Here's what I have so far:

* CERN's httpd running on a Sun.
* an html file with the <ISINDEX> tag called /phonebook
* a csh script called findit that given a keyword,  searches
  the address database and creates an html formatted file
  called phonebook?<keyword> of the requested data.
  (where keyword is the first name or last name of the
   person the user wishes the phone number of)

the question:

   How do I tell the httpd that when it gets the command
GET /phonebook?<keyword> to run "findit <keyword>"?
Is this something I do in /etc/httpd.conf?  If so, can
anyone point me to a discussion of the format of the
rules that you put into /etc/httpd.conf?  If not, how
DO you do this?  Do I need to modify the source for
httpd?  If so, what do I need to change?  RTFM is fine -
but please tell me what FM...  If this is not the
appropriate list to post to please tell me where it
should have been posted.

All help is appreciated.
