Subject [greenstone-users] building from command line vs. from GLI - problem

I have recently experimented with running the import/build from the commmand
line and am noticing something very interesting (this is in the 2.52 version).
The collection consists of Microsoft Word documents. When I do the import/build
with the GLI, it says it is converting them to HTML and the icons for both Word
and HTML show up when previewed. But clicking on the HTML icon shows no text,
though if there is a cover image that shows up.

Meanwhile, doing the same thing from the command line, the HTML version shows up
just fine. I have not altered the config file between doing it one way and
another, at least not intentionally! Any ideas on what's happening?

My commands with the manual method are simply:
perl -S import.pl [collectionname]
perl -S buildcol.pl [collectionname]
followed by a manual drag of the "building" directory contents into "index".

A second query is this - if I choose to go the manual route for a while and
change the config file in the process, then choose to try the GLI again - is
there a way to make the GLI recognize the new changes in the config file or
will it default to the last way it was used?
