Apologies for my ignorance in advance.
This is a question that I suspect is more connected to PHP/Zend, but it also has relevancy to Magento.
When running a dataflow import why does the page not timeout, what are the mechanics that make it work.
Additionally, how does the script output updates before (such as: successfully imported product 'N') the script finishes. Usually when I run a script in Magento it only provides the
echo text after the script finishes.
How does this work?
