      Thanks all, for your help.

      SSI worked a treat, when I remembered to use the shtml extension.

      Still couldn't find an 'exec' in your prog, Gordon.

      I've read that there's a security risk with SSI, but I don't know why.
      Is there any special precautions I should take?
      Bob.

        the HTML header of your document.

        Why does no-one ever think of the simple solution?

          Hi Greg

          Sounds good.
          Can you tell me more about this tag, as I've never used it.

          Bob.

            OK, here's an example:
            The content value is number of seconds after page has been displayed
            before transfer takes place.

            <html><head><title>Lets go Surfin</title>
            <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; URL=script.cgi">
            </head>
            <body>

            Advice: If you are using perl for cgi, you really should know all
            there is to know about html as well.

              Hi Greg
              That's definitely a better solution.

              I have 4 books on html, and none explain the refresh meta tag.
              Do you know where I can get a list of all the tags, with explanations?
              Can't buy any more books yet, as the wife would kill me!

              Thanks, Bob.

              p.s. I suppose someone has to like BMW bikes (ha ha)
              I was a BSA fan myself, but no longer sadly (1953 BSA B31).
