Thank you both dws and shotgunefx, I posted a longer reply but it didn't get into the system apparently.

I seem to remember trying periods and the browser timing out anyway, but it was probably just too much time between periods.

This was for a perl program called by cgi which directs the spidering of a number of sites and indexing of them. I had looked at IO::Tee, but since I only want the browser to display a very short summary with the log file containing more detail, in the end a fork and spaces being printed by the parent seems best. I supposed I could run a number of children in parallel but when I've done this in the past I got two activity logs interleaved in one file, so I'll keep it serial for now.

I guess I was *too* lazy a perl coder. :)
