in thread cgi download and delete file

Thank you very much! Anyway, I think there is something I am getting wrong... When I use the cgi::application's header_prop (in the download_file subroutine) what I'm actually doing is a redirection to the download window, is it right? Cause I tried to make a redirection after the execution of the subroutine, but in this case the download doesn't start. If I put a sleep command after the subroutine, the script executes before the sleep command and then launches the download. So...I don't really understand this behaviour. I tried :

$self->download_zip(); sleep 5; my $filename = "temporaneo/" . $self->session->param("nom_projet") + . ".zip"; unlink $filename;
and
$self->generate_zip(); $self->download_zip(); return $self->redirect("http://delete.cgi");
What I was trying to do was following your advice: put the zip file in another directory and, if succeed, redirect to another run mode that erases the file, otherwise stay on the page and relaunch the download.

    Okay, I think I got the solution to my last question... it was simple. In fact I solved it in the following way...
    $self->generate_zip(); my $output = $self->download_zip(); #here I can do what I want. unlink and so on.. my $filename = "temporaneo/" . $self->session->param("nom_projet") + . ".zip"; unlink $filename; #and only then I stream the output return $output;
    I can now redirect to another runmode passing the $output variable and solve the problem as you suggested. thank you very much!
