Blank html page when long processing at serverside

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All,

I'm using cgi/perl for the backend processing and its
processing 100,000 records, then the confirmation info
it sends back to the client through html. This program
works fine for few thousand lines processing, but when
user requests for the large file the html page is becoming
blank. How to make sure that the client (html page) waits
while server processing and then the server sends the
appropriate message back to the user (either succeeded
or failed of the processing). btw, all the processing is
being performed properly even with huge data, only the
client side will not be knowing (as the page is blank)
Is there any time delay I need to introduce in html or in
form tag or in cgi ??
Warm Wishes,

      Dear Randall,

      Good Morning. Thanks for taking time and replying. I will
      be working on this and give the feedback.
      Oh .. just a small note.. I have your book "Learning Perl",
      the sleek small book which was published in 95. This I
      am using on and off as handy reference whenever I need
      to work on simple perl programs. Just wanted to share.



        Consider getting the "Perl Cookbook". It sounds as if this book will be very useful for you. (Personally, I love it.)

        Everything went worng, just as foreseen.
