The GNHLUG web is a web-based collaboration tool.

GNHLUG is a cgi-bin script written in Perl. It reads a text file, hyperlinks it and converts it to HTML on the fly. The point is to:

  • make the text editing process very simple ( click on the Edit link at the bottom of the page )
  • and to find information fast ( WebSearch ).

What does the name TWiki stand for?

  • Wiki wiki means quick in Hawai'ian. They call the shuttle at the Honolulu airport the wiki wiki bus.
  • TWiki is the short form of TakeFive Wiki . (Later on I found out that Twiki is the name of a robot in a Buck Rogers TV show in 1979)

GNHLUG is one of many WikiWikiClones; the first one was built by Ward Cummingham.

Topics of interest:


  • GNHLUG automatically signs new pages with your WikiName in case GNHLUG is running on an Intranet where you log in. In case your GNHLUG installation does not authenticate users, GNHLUG does not know about user names, all contributors have the user name TWikiGuest.
  • TWiki's source code is available upon request, see
  • This GNHLUG version is TWiki-6.1.0, Mon, 16 Jul 2018, build 30610 .
