in thread Have CGI call script, display status in browser

Sorry, I should have been more specific The perl script I am trying to start from a submit button, creates text files based on data read from a database, then saves these files to disk. Its output just prints 'RUNNING', and 'COMPLETE' to STDOUT, which in this case needs to be an HTML form so that I know the status of the perl script

    Ahhh . . . I see. Perl, in this fashion, is a server side technology. What you need is a client side technology like JavaScript (Though you can still use Perl server side). See cgi buffer flush for a more detailed discussion.

    Cheers,
    Erik
