I couldn't find a section devoted to Macromedia type questions, but here goes-  Can Flash implement calls from a script language such as Perl or Cold Fusion?  Does it understand them like shockwave does?

As I understand it, no.  Flash is purely client-side, but there is a way you can simulate the effect you describe:  dynamicly generate your flash-files using macromedia's Flash Generator (being released soon -- see the FAQ at http://www.macromedia.com/software/generator/productinfo/faq/faq.html ), and simply have the Flash file call a new dynamic file which takes its place on the screen.  If your files are small and similar, then it should give the impression of being updated onscreen.
