For example, say the hardware generates the number '10493', Python then reads this, then somehow the result is displayed on the HTML page. The data generated by the hardware will be continuous at timed intervals, so the webpage needs to refresh whenever new data is received (or on a set time).
So here's where I'm stuck. I've looked into CGI but I'm not sure how to implement an automatic fetch or refresh. I would also like to have only parts of the web page refresh if possible, instead of the entire page. Any ideas how I would go about implementing this? Maybe there's a better suggestion to HTML, like Flash? Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance
