just make sure that you send "Content-type: application/zip\n\n" instead of
"Content-type: text/html\n\n" when you see that action with that filename
extension...most browsers should download the file, if they know it's not
text/viewable. As for how to send the file to the browser, read up on
filehandles and binmode...(and the EOF character sequence)
I don't normally use CGI.pm, so I'm sure somebody else will give you more
thorough advice based on it's use.

I need to know: How do you make it so when you go to say main.pl it
just opens the homepage, but if you go to main.pl?
action=download&location=file.zip it downloads file.zip from the
downloads folder? also id like to do something like main.pl?
action=redirect&location=search and take the person to my search
directory. I am leaving out of the country tomorrow so please send
all the info you can and don't expect a response for a week.
Thanx a lot!
