Hello, Joshua,

    Thank you for your insight suggestion.

I tried to write the result to a separate file and refresh the file first by a
CGI redirect command and then the file will be refreshed automatically by
javascripts. But, now the process even stops much earlier. I checked system log
file, I found the following line:

    [Mon Jan 21 18:49:28 2002] [info] [client] (32)Broken pipe:
client stopped connection before send body completed

This is a different error from the previous "send body timed out". Is the new
error because of my unproper using CGI redirect?

BTW, the javascripts for refresh seem not working correctly either. It seems
refresh when screen blinks, but the contents are always same. I can only see
the updates by manually click the reload button on the NS browser. Anything
wrong with the following javascripts which I got from the network:

  function changeLoad() {
    setTimeout("refresh()", 10*1000); //set timeout before refreshing,
                                      //in this case 10 seconds.

  function refresh() {
    window.location.href = "$url" + "result/result.html";


Anyway, it seems works fine from the command line.
