in thread Play audio on a web page

quite correct...client (browser) side technologies. the specification doesn't mention anything that needs to be done on server side, which is where perl runs. the perl can present CGI/html/etc to the browser via a web server..but it still runs server side, and doesn't interact directly with browser. javascript/html/flash etc work on the browser/client side.
the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H
