Here's another suggestion for you. This only works with javascript ON. Have your html page load a image. Set the img's src to a perl script you write. Add a onLoad javascript tag.
<html><title>page.html</title> <img src="http://www.myperlscripturl.cgi"> <body onLoad="window.location(page.html');"> </html>
Have the perl script open an image on your server and spit it out. Before the image-serving perl script dies, put it in a sleeped loop. Every loop the perl script checks your chat log file. When the chat log file has a new modification date, exit the perl script.
Upon exiting the loop, the javascript will now complete it's body onLoad function. This will give you a chat like webpage which will only refresh the html page when new live content is put on the server.
- Hope this helps.

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.
