in thread cgi buffering

Switch to non-parsed-headers mode (i.e. rename your CGI to nph-*) and generate the HTTP response yourself. Apache won't buffer your response in that case.

    Hi Alexander, thanks for that. I tried renaming my script to nph-bob.pl :
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI qw(:standard -nph); $| = 1; print header; print qq { <HTML> <HEAD> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=wind +ows-1252"> <TITLE>the Title</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> }; print "Starting ...<br>\n"; for (my $i=0; $i < 10; $i++) { print "$i<br>\n"; sleep 1; } print "</BODY></HTML>"; exit;


    No effect at all, one cgi-bin env is fine, the other waits for the page to complete before displaying it. I notice from the Apache 2 documentation that it no longer buffers like pre 1.3 did, and that there is no need for nph- prefixed scripts (I think it meant that).

    I even tried using "Multipart/mixed" to no avail either. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Thanks much,

    Caesura

    Update : Its actually Server version: Oracle HTTP Server Powered by Apache/1.3.19 (Unix), sorry ;)
