Actually, you can do pretty close to what you ask without using AJAX or similar... so long as you're not concerned about the change in the filename/URL.

If that's so, simply include the original renderable content of index.html, from immediately after the <body> tag to just before the </body> tag, replacing the input form with the an appropriately formatted section to render the "answer."

This has some drawbacks, particularly if your original page is very large, but it also has the advantage of sidestepping problems for the visitor who chooses to browse with javascript disabled and it will give the visitor the impression that s/he is still on the same page (except for the contents of the address bar).

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
