Small question. Can't Post

How would I do this....

A user loads a page, that page activates a CGI script on a different server/website and that script returns data to that page.

I really need to know, thanks.

Use the LWP::Simple module.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use LWP::Simple;

my $url = "";

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";

print get( $url ) &#0124; &#0124; "Oh dear, couldn't load $url";</pre><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Note: this board has a terribly habit of inserting spaces in the OR operator, so if you cut and paste, make sure you remove the extra space from between &#0124; &#0124;.

You mean using SSI (Server side Include)?
You can use small script to return plain text while user loading the page of .shtml.......
