LYNX-DEV Lynx question - maybe cache

From: n9pgm
Subject: LYNX-DEV Lynx question - maybe cache
Date: Mon, 27 Jan 1997 15:19:12 -0600 (CST)


I am developing a database system and think that cache is causing some 

Scenario: A record was previously added to the database. I bring up an 
html document that contains a form. The default value for each input tag 
is the value of a field in the particular record that I want to update. 
The name attribute for each input tag is different than the value 
attribute for that tag. I modify the input field, submit the form, and 
the cgi script (action) updates the database.

If I exit Lynx at this point and reenter Lynx, The updated values appear 
when I either display an html document that lists the modified record's 
fields, or when I bring up the update form described above.

However, if after submitting the form (paragraph 1, above), I bring up 
the update html / form, the old data appears. The script that displays 
the form begins by retrieving the record from the database, which does 
include the new values, but the old data appears in the form. This leads 
me to believe that the form looks to cache for the default values.

I am looking down the wrong path for a solution? If not, can caching be 
turned off? Where on the Internet can I look for documentation on this 
and other Lynx issues?

Thanks for your help,
Dan Gistenson
