Displaying Acrobat Files

Can anyone give me a clue as to how I can bring up an Acrobat file into the browser using a perl script?

I've tried;

print "location.href='/drawings/2121022a.pdf'";

but it don't work. I guess that's not the way to do it!!

Thanks in advance.

RE: Displaying Acrobat Files

if u are using a perl script, i guess the correct syntax should be:

print "Location: /drawings/2121022a.pdf\n\n";

if i'm not wrong, the statement u used in your message is a javascript. u should use a http header instead.


:) happy programming (:
