This would be best done via Dynamic HTML and/or Javascript.

That's a great sample but....it is for ASP not for Perl. I will use it some day. I give you credit for that.

Another thing is that I in fact open file on the server side without download to client.
May be it can be easier ?

Now, I'm confused.

So you open the file on the server side, then what do you want to do if the client isn't receiving it?

Client always gets either file or "not found" page. The question is how to show progress bar until page is actually opens ?
