automatic button click script

I have this code

<script>
function refresh()  
{
    window.location.reload();
}
</script>
<button onclick='refresh();'>Refresh the page once</button>

I need a script that will reload without having to click on the button

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
