Well, it will only run once in a while (ie: when the network configuration
changes, which is usually not often).
I found though, that 'kill -HUP <pid of apache process>' does what I need.
The perl cgi script runs, and apart from the browser waiting for some
terminating character (I send a warning to the user, and the last chars
sent are "...</html>\n") from the server's previous configuration, it's
working as expected.
So, that begs the next question... what is sent by the server to a client
after '</html>' to tell the browser to stop expecting more data?

Ah, that should do it. Thanks Joe!
