I created a PDF file (mypdf.pdf) in a CGI app and want to display it in

I return the following data from my CGI application:

Content-type: application/pdf
Location: /myloc/mypdf.pdf

Results observed:

 [v] show PDF in browser checkbox is selected in Adobe PDF reader 5 :

         Empty screen without any error appers. Access log shows that Apache
reads pdf file
          put browse does not show it.

 [ ] show PDF in browser checkbox is not selected in Adobe PDF reader 5 :

        As save dialog appers in IE 6. It is possible to save a PDF, not to

Typing   /myloc/mypdf.pdf in browser command line shows PDF OK.

I thin Apache sends http headers which causes IE not no allow open a pdf

Is it possible to show or open PDF in browser using Apache ?
