in reply to CGI::Application - how to get a popup window

Greetings jdtoronto,

CGI::Application is a Perl module, so it helps organize work that needs to be done server-side. Opening a pop-up window is a client-side function, so it requires Javascript (unless you just want a new, full-size window, in which case you can just use an anchor target). In the returned HTML for the page, add something like this:

<script type="text/javascript"> "your-cgi-wrapper.cgi?rm=popupstart", "popup", "width=500" ); </script>

Obviously, "popupstart" is the run-mode of the first page of the pop-up.

    Thanks gryphon, I had it in my head that I could do it with headers without having to use the JavaScript, but the JS method works so why not!
