I am looking for a way to run call an external system command and capture the output to display to the browser in real time. This external script runs for a long time (2 mins or so) so it would be great if there was a way for this output to come to the browser in semi realtime.

The script I'm running is a perl script, so alternatively the script could to display output could be in perl.
I'm running Linux and Apache.
Thanks in advance.
