Main Question or Discussion Point
I am trying to install mimetex on my webhosts server so that I can generate latex images similar to on this website. i have to simply get the cgi (which i have to compile). The thing is the webhost's server is running apache on linux and i run windows. I downloaded a precompiled cgi package for linux and place the appropriate file in the cgi bin; it did not work. What i wanted to know is whether or not the cgi file would be valid if i compiled the cgi file in windows?
