( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am trying to use the perl module CGI::ProgressBar

When I use the example code from the cpan page I dont see a progress bar on my browser. The page just seems to hang for the duration of the test then displays the final page.

I am pretty sure I have the prereqs in terms of javascript enabled on browser etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Code I am using is

use strict; use warnings; use CGI::ProgressBar qw/:standard/; $| = 1; # Do not buffer output print header, start_html( -title=>'A Simple Example', -style=>{ -src => '', # You can override the bar style +here -code => '', # or inline, here. } ), h1('A Simple Example'), p('This example will update a JS/CSS progress bar.'), progress_bar( -from=>1, -to=>100 ); # We're set to go. for (1..10){ print update_progress_bar; # Simulate being busy: sleep 1; } # Now we're done, get rid of the bar: print hide_progress_bar; print p('All done.'); print end_html; exit;

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
