in reply to About how PERL scripts execute


Your problem isn't really Perl, rather CGI. The way that CGI is designed means you can't send progress data back while the upload is in progress. See the following node: "Yet another progress bar." for some additional comments and ideas - it's a popular question, but the answer is hard...

Good luck!

    Thanks ajt

    I'm hoping Macphisto will see my post and get in contact with me. I'd be interested to see if he came up with a workable solution

    Obviously, I'm new to Perl and this site and I was wondering is there a way to contact Macphisto directly instead of just hoping he will see my post?

    Thanks again


      You can send Macphisto a private message by using the /msg command in the chatterbox. Whenever Macphisto nexts visits the Monastery, the message will be waiting. See Using the Chatterbox: Private Messaging for more information.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
