Re: Javascript generating Javascript?

Well, it can be done now, but it takes a shell script or Perl or other CGI.
It will be nice when they put out Livewire and JavaScript, then our
JavaScript trials and tribulations could go to work there.  But, it takes a
Netscape server to run Livewire, and my server runs Unix and Apache -- and I
have no desire to find another Web server.  So... parlez vous Perl?

(Here's hoping Netscape puts out an straing Unix version of a JavaScript
server interpreter.  They'd *certainly* do it if Microsoft put out a Unix
version of the Visual Basic runtime.  Since that'll probably never happen, I
can't imagine Netscape being prodded into doing it for JavaScript.  Still,
one can hope.  And, JavaScript is an open language.  If they don't do it,
maybe someone else will.)
