I remember about a year ago, there was a chat site that used HTML as it's medium. It was somewhat impressive in one area, which was that it had Streaming Chat or more appropriately the chat's posts werealways being received and never stopped until a certain limit hit a which then stopped the stream.
I have been trying to reproduce this with no luck. I have seen similar "streaming" effects when you downloaded a large HTML file and had to wait. Yet, generating normal HTML will not allow you to do this simply using a while loop and sleep (it shows nothing whatsoever, not even a simple print between a while).
I was looking into a server push operation. But it seems (at least in the CGI::Push module for Perl) that it can display multiple pages and not simply a very long stream. Anyone have a chance to implement such a scheme using preferably Perl?
