Calling HTML/CGI wizards....Auto page refreshing
D Lloyd email (remove spam text)
I wanted to implement a quick and dirty way of refreshing a page generated from a CGI script.
It's quite easy to do it the dirty way, with the <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" tag arrangement but it expects a URL to be specified....
As I have "written out" the META tag via CGI, I don't have a specific URL to refresh "back to."
The page can be manually refeshed via a submit button; is there a way of embedded the "submit" into the meta tag so that the refresh pretends that the
submit button is being pressed?
Is it as easy as just specifying the Perl/CGI script that would be normally called on the submit?
OR, better still, can anyone suggest a better way of doing this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
PS: This is PIC related! I am trying to refresh data from an Internet-enabled embedded PIC
