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.

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.
