[Bioperl-l] Linking of two cgi scripts

Hello,

Why do they both have to be CGi scripts? cant all the processing
happen server side, i.e. both BLAST and comparison of returned
results?

If that is strictly a requirement, you could:

a) get input from user on script A, i.e. the input sequence
b) do a HTTP request from the CGI to the other script B using LWP::UserAgent
c) get results from script B, pass on to comparison module
d) return results to user

As I said, this will be clunky so either do everything in one go or
consider AJAX

hope this helps
