Here's an alternate approach, pehaps a bit complex, but it would get you around having to have 'push' at all. I assume you have some sort of session tracking mechanism already in place.

  • Have the script that runs the long query just return a page with a meta-refresh of X seconds, while it forks and runs the long query in the background. The child process then stores the results in a session specific location (maybe use Apache::Session).
  • The script that the meta-refresh points to checks the session store to see if the results are there. If they are, they are given to the browser, and removed from the session store. If not, the same meta-refresh page is returned to the browser and the process repeats until the long query is complete.


perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e6470272f2c5f2c5166756279636b672');"

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)

    [choroba]: fc $s1 eq fc $s2 I guess
    [Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
    [LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ß is ss ?
    [Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
    [LanX]: I have my doubts, IMHO its a workaround if the glyph is missing
    [LanX]: (they are pronounced differently)
    [choroba]: perl -Mutf8 -Mfeature=fc -wE 'say fc "straße" eq fc "strasse"'
    [choroba]: returns 1 for me
    [choroba]: are they?
    [LanX]: strict rules : the a is long in "straße" and short in "strasse"
