in reply to incomplete cgi output

It may, of course, be that there is something wrong with your code but if, as you imply, this is a timing-out issue then the canonical solution is to serve a `please wait' script with a refresh instruction in the header while your file is being written. The intermediary script checks the output progress and serves a download link on completion.

This technique has been explained with example code by merlyn in one of his famous Web Techniques columns.
