I am setting up a CGI Script coded in perl to log into a db and update some records.

I need to execute this from another server from a batch file under a specific situation. I created the batch file with 1 line....
START http://server1:900/cgi-bin/CPO_EnvDown_SIT.cgi

This opens up a window, executes the script, but it leeaves the browser open.
How can I close the browser window?

Or is there another way I should execute it?

I found that if I put this at the end of the script it works.......with 1 more issue. I get the message: The webpage you are viewing is tring to close....

How do I get round this?


print qq!<script>
window.close()
</script>!;

Just whip up a quick perl script to fetch the page with LWP, and run the perl script from your batchfile.

Or if server 2 doesn't have perl ( START looks like windoze), use wget.
