Another option, building upon the column by merlyn linked to by atcroft, would be to employ the Javascript XMLHttpRequest object to communicate with the server and update an element of your web page with the progress (as reported by the server) of a detached, long-running process. The advantage which this method would have (to my mind) is that you could browse away from the page and return at a later stage to check on progress (or have the process checked upon by non-initiators of the long-running process).

 

perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001000000000'"

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
