Q&A  > CGI programming


Description:

I need to run a cgi script that takes around 10-15 seconds to gather all the data from another server. While the task is executing I would like users to see a nice static HTML page saying something like 'Task in progress...' and once the task has executed the splash page is replaced by the results. How can I do this? Thanks in advance. Mark
