If i type in "progress.cgi" directly into the browser (so it is called directly) then it runs as expected printing a "." every second for 10 seconds.
If i call progress.cgi from ANOTHER script via either POST or GET, then there is a 10 second pause and a sting of 10 periods is printed all at once: ".........." instead of 1 at a time.
- Both scripts have $|=1 enabled (disabled?) :)
- Same behaviour for both GET and POST methods
- Same behaviour in both IE and Mozilla
- I get the correct behavior if i call the script directly from a browser
- I get the correct behavior if i telnet to the web server and do a manual GET
