Post Perl Question ?


Hi to all . i know this is general Perl question.
but i would like to ask the experts in this.


i have a website that is running under Apache + perl .

I have added an MP3 song that would run in the background for anyone who would visit my web.

Can I keep the song playing in the background as long as that user is viewing my webpages ? Even if he go from one page to another ,
So as long as the user is browsing my website pages the song keeps playing without stopping and playing again.


Thank you .

Regards,
MaaS

It's probably possible, but that doesn't make it a good idea. Will your users really want background music following them from page to page? I think web pages with music are annoying.

That said, you can use frames and give one small static one the background sound and open your content in a large frame. With judicious use of CSS, it will be almost unnoticeable.

I still think you should reconsider adding a persistent background sound, though.

Google for a tutorial on HTML frames, that's one way of doing what you want. Here's one: http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/frames/frames.html. You only need Perl for serving up the frameset. You can use CSS to make the frames unobtrusive.

i second that. use frames with css stylesheets and you should be able to create constant background music while navigating through your entire site.

as grunt547 said, google HTML frames and find out more about it. you could even make it so the music continues to play after they leave your site, provided they used a link on your page to access external sources
