multithreading in perl
Message ID:
I've to deal with threading in perl to handle the following situation:
1. a cgi script excutes a job which will take a long time to finish.
Instead of setting a high timeout, I'm planning to implement threading
feature in perl.  So when the CGI fires up the script, I would like to
create a thread and send the response to the browser saying that
1. process has began and
user can quit and check back after some time.
> or keep the browser sit there  and I'll show  a different page with info
> process has finished after some time
> Does anyone have any experience handle this sort of situation
