jonnyfolk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've written a script which updates a data file then prints a web page with an embedded sound file. However it seems that the iphone won't directly play an embedded sound file.

I'm wondering if I call the sound file directly how I might generate the change to the data file as the sound file is accessed. Perhaps I could use .htaccess?

I'd br grateful for any ideas
