Apologies for the many CGI posts.

Anyway, I am attempting to set up a script that runs blast jobs,
these take some time, so a "pease wait" message whilst they are running
followed displaying the results would be good.
There are suggestiong here:
http://www.daimi.au.dk/~mailund/css/cgi-ui-ex.html
http://tech.irt.org/articles/js172/#io_buffering
....but these are for Perl.

At present, I have something like:

def results(genome)
	if genome.empty?
		# display the "please select a genome to search" message
	else
		# show a please wait message
		results = run_job(genome)
		if results.empty?
			# print "nothing found" message
		else
			# print results
		end
	end
end

cgi.out do
	cgi.html do
		cgi.body {
			header +
			submit_buttons +
			results(genome) + 
			footer
		}
	end
end

This runs but does not (of course) display the "please wait" part.
Are there any sites similar to the above giving Ruby examples?
Thanks.
