I have a CGI script that I want to add extra functionality to.
The extra functionality does not effect the output, so I want to close the output and then do it - so that the extra functionality does not hold up the web browser on the client machine.
How do I signify to apache that I am finished returning output from my script and close the output?
Will this actually speed up the process? Or is apache going to cache the output of my script and only return it once my script has finished executing anyway?
