Web page timeout with long perl script ftp Can't Post

I have a web page which runs a perl script that ftp's large files to another location. When the ftp is done it is suppose to output complete to the web page. With small files it works great. With LARGE files it seems that the web page times out before the transfer is complete and goes to an error page. Any way around this?

Randal Schwartz dealt with the basic problem (a task runs past the browser timeout limit) in one of his Web Techniques columns a while back. See
