perl send processing page
Posted on 2002-07-26
I am trying to write a PERL script which does quite a bit
of processing before it displays anything to the browser.
I want to send to the browser a message like "Working on your
query" while the processing is happening. Does anyone know
of a trick or tip to send HTML code to the browser while
processing is taking place?
I have found some comments on the web,
saying I should do $|=1 to to bypass script buffer,
and I need to bypass web server buffer too. I am using
apache server 1.3.
Can somebody give me a working example?
