in thread printing during process

The only way anyone will know how to help you is if you post the relevant code from the CGI file you're using. However, the first thing that comes to mind is autoflush:

local $| = 1;

    Here is an example:
    sub scanUrl { my $_url = $in{url}; my $_startingNumber = 0; my $_tnum = 0; my $_endingNumber = 100000; while($_endingNumber > $_startingNumber) { if($_tnum == 10) { print "."; $_tnum = 0; } sleep(1); } }
    That does not have any of my tracking code in it, but it is an example, if you run that, it never prints a period until it finishes. How do I get it to print the things I want it to, before it finishes the subroutines or while statement?

      I forgot to add the $_tnum++; and $_startingNumber++; before the sleep...
