( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello Fellows, Perl CGI : Can anyone tell me how to show real-time progress of a loop doing stuff onto a web page, perhaps using Ajax? I have a submit button which calls a subroutine which loops round a list of items and processes them - I'd like to show the results of the process in real time onto the web page, so that the user can see whats happening, 'cos it takes a long time. I have actually just printed the results to the browser, and that works except it's never a proper web page (<html> to </html> until its finished. I could write the results to a file continually, and have a separate web page read it on auto-refresh, but I don't like that method - don't like to have too many tmp files about the place. It can be done withh Ajax and javascript, but my prog is in Perl ... Any help would be much appreciated! Cheers Caesura

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
