Using Perl to form a pop-up window?

Using Perl to form a pop-up window?

I am wondering if there is any way to use Perl to forma a pop-up window. This is for a Java Chat script which uses JavaSript to form a pop-up window and print the Java Applet insode the pop-up window, but I am converting it to Perl. If there is a way to form a pop-up window with Perl, then my script will be compltely Perl dependent and will not require the use of JavaScript at all. Not that it would make much difference, I just think it would kind of cool.

RE: Using Perl to form a pop-up window?

When you generate an HTML page with perl, you really just send HTML from inside the perl script to the default output. To generate a popup window, you need to use JavaScript. So, what you do is include JavaScript for a popup window within the HTML, which is within the perl script.
