But I have to wait for the application to finish. The idea is: the application will 
take the file, and convert it into PDF file (it takes more than 30 seconds generally), 
then display the generated  PDF file.

I am just wondering if I can use "Header()" to redirect to a general php page, then in 
that page, redirect to the PDF file.  

Thanks,
George

You can (possibly) just redirect before the rest of your script.
Ofcourse you can't do that when the rest of the script produces
output, but it seems to me like it doesn't.

Try the next code:

--- PHP code ---
<?php
  header ("Location: http://somewhere.com";);
  error_log ("And still my script is running!", 0);
?>
--- End of PHP code ---

You'll see that the original script will write the line to the
logfile although the user is already redirected to the next page.

Btw... 30 seconds is a rather long time. No user will ever want to
wait that long. Just my opinion...
