    How to call a CGI app from within a Flex app

    BreadOfBoise
      Good morning. Flex noob question time!

      I am building a dashboard for our infrastructure management and need to obtain information from one of our monitoring tools. For those of you familiar with Nagios, I wish to call status.cgi (full URL: http://servername/nagios/cgi-bin/status.cgi?host=all&servicestatustypes=28). This app reads the status.dat file and returns the network status in HTML format.

      So what I wonder, is how I might be able to invoke status.cgi from within my Flex app and how to receive/display the results. I'm reviewing a number of Flex books looking for this answer and haven't seen anything yet. If someone could provide some insight, I'd appreciate it.

      Thanks!
