Running Perl script in the backend from Html

following is my Html code:

<form name="form100" method="post" action="script.pl">
<textarea cols = "160" rows="12" name="TextArea1" > </textarea>
<input align = "left" name="UpdateButton" type= "submit" value="Update" >

in the above code, if i click on submit button, a webpage is opened and the script in script.pl is executed.

is there any way such that another web-page is not opened and the script is run in the backend?

Please help me!!

Not with perl. That is server side only. You would need javascript.
