HELP...CALL AUTOMATICALLY A WEB SITE FROM INSIDE A CGI SCRIPT

I am a student of systems engineering. So I am working in my thesis with some CGI-scripts but I'm using Informix 4gl Web Kit instead of Perl. So I would like to know how I can call automatically(without any link. I mean, If some condition get true then the CGI call another web site) a web site from a CGI, and if I can call another CGI from inside other CGI.
  If you know how to do it, please tell me.
 
  Thanks in andvance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well, I needed to do both things and , the only method i found to do it was :
Display first "Content-type: text/html" (I did it in C ; i dont know informix but sure that you can display text to stdout) with two blank lines and the html program ; this program can either jump to a web site (meta-http refresh=0 url=<website>) , or exec another cgi , (the url can be a local exe program) .

Simply print to STDOUT the lines

"HTTP/1.0 302 Redirect\n"
"Location: http://where.you.want.it.to.go/there.html\n\n"

(minus the double quotes)

Depending on where you want to go.  You can also redirect to a CGI, so instead of the location to a html page, refer to a CGI script.
