How can I run a CGI script in the background. Meaning not have a page displayed. I want to send the script some data,
have it do something and depending on the result, bring up one of two pages.
Right now the only way I can do it is have the form execute the script. The script does it's thing and then writes a page saying it was successful or not. I have a meta tag in the script which executes the next page after 1 second. I would like to skip the message in between part.
Hope I have explained this well.
