Upload Files progress bar

109 100+
Hi... i am doing some CGI script using perl. I would like to create a progress bar to indicate the progress of the uploading. Is this possible? i don't have the CGI::ProgressBar module...

Is it possible to get the number of bytes transfered then divide by the size of the file to upload and then draw a simple image through html?

It is possible yes. Is it easy? No.

I've never used CGI::ProgressBar, but that might be something worth exploring. Overall though, I think the simpliest method is to simply have an animated gif that implies that the website is working and will be done eventually.

cpan CGI::ProgressBar

If you want an interactive Progress Bar, the only real way to do it is to use Ajax. This is something that is currently beyond my experience or interest.
