How to call a Perl script that has no return display

How to call a Perl script that has no return display

(OP)

I want to write a perl script that writes to a DB using mysql, however once the write has performed I dont want the Perl script to return anything to the screen, but instead leave the screen with the original html that called the perl script, is this possible?

I understand how to write values to a DB, its the second part that I am unsure about.

RE: How to call a Perl script that has no return display

It is possible. You HAVE to write something, but you can just rewrite the html page to the screen, or output a redirect to the original html file.

RE: How to call a Perl script that has no return display

I read somewhere that if you output a special kind of header type, similar to "Content-type:no change" or such, the page will not change.
Find this answer in CGI FAQs, I'm sure it's in there.
