Client Client-Server Communication in Perl CGI

Hi Friends,

I have a requirement like this,

My client program is a browser, and the server may be run in perl, ror
or any other server side scripting. The browser has to send the
request to the server once, after that the server has to keep track of
the client and send the response frequently to the client.

One way we can achieve this with Applets. Is there any other way to
achieve this ?

welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], sri!

since your client is a browser, you are necessarily using HTTP protocol so you really only have 2 choices:
- you can do a meta refresh to periodically reload the page.
- you can use AJAX-type techniques to periodically request updates to content on the page.
