Re: [Nagios-devel] semicolons as comments?

Postby Guest » Thu Apr 25, 2002 3:19 pm

To complicate things. Semicolon comments only work within objects and
not in nagios.cfg, cgi.cfg et all ;)

Just got a big error showing the CGI couldn't read the logfile ".. ;
blabla". But 'nagios -v' gave no error.

Yes Chris, you found a bug or a missing check :)
