in reply to Redirection problems with Perl, Netscape and IE

Thanks vladb for your help with CGI::Persistent.

I have found the major extent of my problem, after a lot of poking around.

The Redirection header was (and I thought remained as) 'Location:'

This is not the case.
Location: is no longer the definitive "Redirect Header." URI: is now the preferred redirection header.

If you look in my code, you'll see:

print $q->redirect(-URL=>...

By changing URL to URI, CGI.pm changes Location: to URI:. If you check the perlfaq9, it says that CGI.pm sends both, but I'm not sure that the version I'm using - on a virtually hosted machine. :( - does what the perlfaq says.

Thanks to those (especially vladb) for your help.
