Form POST Method w/ *TURNING ON * Cache: How??
Posted on 1998-09-07
I have made a CGI-Perl script which is called from my starting HTM webpage via a form POST method. All consecutive screens are generated from the CGI script.
The problem occurs when a user of the CGI generated webpage scews off and checks another HTM hyperlink on that page (ie. a help screen for the CGI generated webpage). When he/she tries to return to the previous screen (the CGI generated webpage) via the BACK BUTTON, they are faced with the "annoying" message:
This document resulted from a POST operation and has expired from the cache. If you wish you can repost the
form data to recreate the document by pressing the reload button.
How do I tell my CGI-Perl script to output a webpage which is "cached" and won't expire with the POST method? Do i need to use Non-parsed headers?
Thanks for any help.
