i had asked earlier about ns_returnredirect
and someone had answered saying that i should not return any headers before the command
is there any way to return some headers and then say automatically refresh the page?

If your goal is to set some cookies with one tcl script and then redirect the user to a different tcl script, you can do the following:

    ns_write "HTTP/1.0 302
Set-Cookie: some_variable=[ns_urlencode $some_variable]; Path=/;
Location: some_page.tcl

Note the blank line at the end of the ns_write. The Set-Cookie line can be repeated as many times as necessary if you want to set multiple cookies.
