running some code within a script prior to running next pl
Posted on 1997-12-28
I have written a perl script that retrieves the mail headers of a user. I now want to click on the header to view the message... EASY! but!!! I don't want to re-login to the mail server (which u would have to do if u run a separate perl script when u click on the header)... SO, is there a way you can click on a "link-like" text (ie. text which is underlined so u know when u click on it u will go view your message) but have the current perl script retrieve you mail then and there and then run the next perl script with the data sent to it via POST... thereby defeating the need to relogin to your mail server...??? this question is very difficult to explain so if you are confused tell me where and I will try and clarify that part...
