Re: redirect in more than standalone mode

in reply to redirect in more than standalone mode

If the browser supports Netscape's "refresh" headers (and what browser doesn't, these days?), you can give it a few seconds in which to render the page before redirecting.

To demonstrate, here's a variation of friedo's code:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new; my $delay_seconds = 4; my $url = 'http://somewhere.com/'; print $q->header( -type => 'text/html', -refresh => "$delay_seconds; $url", ); print "<h1>Here's some HTML.</h1>";

Tested with Firefox and Apache.

print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!
