Hi All,

I'm using cgi/perl for the backend processing and its
processing 100,000 records, then the confirmation info
it sends back to the client through html. This program
works fine for few thousand lines processing, but when
user requests for the large file the html page is becoming
blank. How to make sure that the client (html page) waits
while server processing and then the server sends the
appropriate message back to the user (either succeeded
or failed of the processing). btw, all the processing is
being performed properly even with huge data, only the
client side will not be knowing (as the page is blank)
Is there any time delay I need to introduce in html or in
form tag or in cgi ??
Warm Wishes,

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.
