Php long running script to dynamically update html

This code is a work in progress and should never be used in a production environment without extensive testing!

First, the page that is loaded into the browser, it uses jQuery to receive status updates from ‘getstatus.php’ script

Update Inventory


Long Running Script

This is the long running script simulator



And getstatus.php, the script that returns data to be appended to div

Try it here (buggy)

  1. I like the approach..but I don’t know why it won’t create the file until the loop finishes, even if I open and close the file inside the loop

    Thanks for sharing!
