View Full Version : Web interface editing problem

04-09-2010, 09:21 AM

Sorry to bothered but i hope you could spend some time to help me out. I'm new to PERL and CGI and im currently dealing with products related to wireless sensor network.

They consists of tiny motes and sensorboards where the mote collect information of heat,light and sound and they transfer the information to the sensorboard connected to the computer and uploads data to the computer.

Whereby im able to view data collected in web page when i turn on the web interface. The web page consist of a html header where they load the data collected in the frameset which is in .cgi format.

The problem is that the data receive does not over write. which means that it just keep on going on till the page is full and a manual scrolling and refreshing of the page is need.

My question is that:

1: Is it possible to input a timer or a counter in the .CGI file which enable it to refresh on its own?

2: The data keeps going on without over writing. Is it possible to make the data overwrite?

3: Can i input images into the .CGI file?

Thanks you for your time and hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks & Regards

Use a meta refresh and no-cache in your HTML file?
