Scripts are on different machines,

You should make that clear in your question then.

Is it under your control? Do you have NFS access to it?

If so, you could still exec it.

However, if that other machine is another web-server and you need to invoke the remote script via its url, then it makes a lie of "I don't mean that this is a redirect;", because that is exactly what a redirect does.

Clear questions get good answers.

    Stupid people write unclear questions!

    I meant -- I guess incorrectly -- that this is not a redirect in the HTTP sense of it. There will not be a 301, 302 or 303 HTTP response to the user's POST request. The user will not be sent to interact directly with script 2. All of this action is happening behind the scenes. The user interacts with script 1 from start to finish, but at a certain point, script 1 sends a POST request to script 2.

    Edited to add: Just re-read the original question. I did specifically ask about how to have one script send a POST request to a second script, so I'm really not sure how that was an "unclear question". I think you read into the question something that I didn't actually ask.

      Seems I wasn't the only one who found your question unclear.

      As a pure aside, perhaps what you want it not a formal http redirect, but rather a server rewrite. Whether your server supports it; even whether it is right for your application; I frankly neither know nor care. It's just something I encountered briefly several years ago and pass on in an 'information only' spirit.

      How intelligent one is has little to no direct bearing on how well one communicates. It's a skill, not a trait.

      While as lacking in implementation specifics as your question, you have at least two answers -- zentara's and mine -- that seem to address what you want and the various proxy answers might as well. You'll either have to be much more specific, as with some sample code and expected behavior, or do some reading and experimenting with the tools you've been handed.

        If you had a single url to rewrite; and weren't already using Plack, would you really install this lot rather than write a 10-line LWP::Simple script?
