Hm, why do you say working time is limited ?
Because of the timeout ?

    Yes. The buyer say that CGI exucution time is limited. Also i want to insure that i can continue searching if something bad happens (abnormal program termination).
      I'm not getting a picture..
      A limit of the execution time makes no sense to me..?

      If you've to deal with the browser timeout (I didn't formulate my question exact enough) I could think of a script which runs as a server, independent of the web server.
      You could start|control|stop the replace script through the web interface.

      I'd also say that you've more control over the separated replace script this way,
      the replace script could be restarted by a cron script if it's killed,
      oy you are able to run the script as another user as the web server/ with an other priority.

      [find and replace script]<--IPC-->[webserver cgi sript]

      The web interface could even update the progress and results through some javascript (ajax)

      This is at least how I would do this.

      beside this, storing the progress of the traversal in a filelist file seems like a good idea to me.
