Re: [solutionmaster] Knows when a user has disconnected from a page

You will have to use a session that tracks the user while on the website. If the user has no activity for a certain amount of time the session expires and the user has to start over again. The record would be released when the session expires making available to the next user.

CGI::Session is one such module, there might be others. Sessions usually have to be included at the lowest level of your CGI scripts so hopefully you have not written too much code yet. Trying to add them to already existing CGI scripts can be quite a chore.

I personally don't have too much practical experience with sessions so will not be of much use to help with actual code or how to use the module. I beleive there is a 'cookbook' though for CGI::Sessions, search cpan.
