( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Morning folks,
I'm currently using mod_perl, and thinking that chaining content headers is the way to go with this, but here is my dillema. (Besides my spelling errors..)

I need to run some stored procedures that take upwards of a minute to generate result sets. Ok, thats grand but I dont want the browser to sit there and twiddle.

I'd like to display an animated gif. Simple. Right? I hope.

I'm looking into stacked handlers in my mod_perl code, but I'm not sure if this is what I need. Is it something in Content-Disposition?

1) Push 'Waiting...' animated gif
2) Process report, Perl waits for result set
3) Perl pushes the report html to the browser as if it opened in a target = _blank window. IE: That same window...
Stumped (or rather -> RTFMing),

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
