Subject Dynamically generating file for download
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2007 01:27:10 GMT

I have an Embperl 2.0 based website with lots of epl files in the root
directory to build the page templates, etc.

I have a need to dynamically generate a data file for users to download
based on form input.

I am not sure how I can generate a response to form submission that does not
include the page template html automatically added by the epl files in the
root directory. I also need to return the HTTP response with an appropriate
MIME content type, etc.

Now, I could generate a file somewhere on disk and then send a 302 redirect
to it, or ust use a CGI to generate the file based on an embperl form but
I'd rather do it all dynamically with one page in Embperl.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can approach this?
