Presumably you're doing this on the shell (versus in a web page). You
need to send the newline ("\n") character since most terminals buffer
the output until a newline character is encountered. If htis is a
webpage you are in for even more trouble since browser often won't
output anything until they receive at least X bytes (where X depends on
the browser).
