Solved the problem when it became clear it was a SSFF ( sloped
shoulders, flat forehead ) issue. I _can_ post the POE server.
Where I'm confused now is how to handle the actual process without
having the client wait.
What I am doing is passing a URI to a pdf file that needs to pulled back
followed by some processing. This needs to happen after the client hits
I've got a snippet of code like this:
# All the POE setup and friends plus URI ( get ) parsing then:
start_html("Posted Values") .
"Order Id = " . $oid . br() .
"User Id = " . $uid . br() .
"URL = " . $url . br() .
"md5sum = " . $md5sum . br() .
"Image path = " . $ipath . br() .
# The actual application code goes here and down
What I should go after the $response-content ( ... ); so the rest of my
code runs but the client can continue along its merry way.
