mapserv

The CGI interface can be tested at the commandline by using the „QUERY_STRING“ switch, such as:

mapserv "QUERY_STRING=map=/ms4w/apps/gmap/htdocs/gmap75.map&mode=map"

To suppress the HTTP headers, you can use the „-nh“ switch, such as:

mapserv -nh "QUERY_STRING=map=/ms4w/apps/gmap/htdocs/gmap75.map&mode=map"

To save the output into an image file, use the pipe command such as:

mapserv -nh "QUERY_STRING=map=/ms4w/apps/gmap/htdocs/gmap75.map&mode=map" > test.png
