    Often PHP processes take a long time, such as wildcard searching a PostgreSQL database, or generating thumbnails.

    The PHP host page does not display until the script is complete, so you can not effectively use code such as

    echo "Converting file ".$Infile;
    exec(convert $Infile $O8utfile);

    for realtime feedback to the user.

    How have others implemented a "progress meter" in PHP processes , one thought I had was to use Javascript redirection to call a PHP page with differing parameters each time .

    Any thoughts
    Thanks -Gordon
