Thanks. We may start distributing compiled versions for the platforms we have access to. Those being Sun Solaris, Irix and Linux. Versions with and without projection support make the most sense. Other ideas or important platforms? The NT port is being worked on hard by a couple of other users, hopefully soon.
The only way I can think of to toggle map projections is with different map files, one per
Does that make sense? Fairly easy hack, just a couple of new CGI params (imgext_ll, mapext_ll, and mapxy_ll).

Good one Stephen!
Particularly the move form the .h to the .ini file. That'll make binary distributions
Q. Is there any way to set the returned projection from the CGI-command line?
