in reply to Passing results to a script after form element validation

Not sure I understand what you are trying to do. But if I do, then perhaps you can put your scipt2.cgi into a sub inside a module, and then just call call the sub2, passing on the $co object.

For example:

sub process_form{
        if ( validate_form()){
                $result = MyModule->mysub2($co);
        }
}

    I agree you should do everything in the same cgi if possible. In some cases you can't do that, though, and maybe that's the case here. (For instance, you're using a 3rd party's cgi on their site.)

    Two ideas off the top of my head:

    1. do something funny with javascript
    2. use perl's LWP to do the post, grab the results (or part) and display to the user

    I recommend #2.
