Question Content-Type

hey.. found out what was wrong. didnt have Read permission of the file for others LOL. But yeah the C version of it, why does it work in Netscape and not IE?

Hey everyone!
Has anyone run into this before...
I'm creating a UNIX CGI program that will parse $QUERY_STRING and save it into a file, then cat the file to an email address. However in Internet Explorer the email is blank. On the website it says something like "No subject, no body; hope that's ok!"
I ran into this before when I wrote the CGI program in C.
However, when I ran it in Netscape it worked fine.
A friend of mine said it was beacuse of the "Content-Type"
echo "Content-Type: text/html"
echo ""

Does anyone know how to get it working in IE?

echo "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"

i'm not exactly sure if this is will help, but everytime I print the content type i have those two line feeds at the end.
