How to redirect to another URL

I've seen web sites that show a page for a few seconds, then automatically redirect to another URL. How do they do this? The only way I am able to put a redirect statement is before the <html> statement, which immediately redirects, without being able to show the page that is doing the redirection for a few seconds, as I want to.

You do it like this (example in PERL)

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Location: www.moved.com\n\n"


The actual temporary display is performed by the browser and is handled differently by different brands.  The Location response, it what triggers that to happen.

You can do it in HTML with the command:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="60; url=page.htm">

make sure you put it in between<HEAD> </HEAD>
the 60 is the amount of seconds you want it to wait before moving on. the URL is the page to goto.
