in reply to Debugging cgi-bin script

I suspect, given the description of how the behavior differs from one system to the next, combined with the fact that simply adding a 'print' here and there changed the behavior, that you're suffering from buffering. You could try setting The special variable, $| to a true value to disable buffering on STDOUT, or just be sure to flush the output buffer with a newline at appropriate times.

    One of the first things merlyn's script does (and mine as well) is sets $| to true with $|++. I still think it's possible that it could somehow be a buffering issue though.
