 Newbie: graphic counter:shes-a no work!

I am new to writing CGI scripts in PERL and have hit a wall. I can fully
read in form data, analyze it, file it, send e-mail and respond with a
new HTML. But my new effort in getting a graphic counter to work is a
no-show. I have copied several examples but none seem to work, just a
broken gif picture.

Anybody have a good perl script that works and the needed HTML SRC line
needed to call it?

Two other alternatives :

  A) You post your code so that we can actually see what is wrong with it

  B) You post to comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi

Oh BTW that is Perl not PERL - please see perlfaq1.

[Graham, would you please stop posting your replies *above*
the part to which you reply?  It makes a continuing thread so
hard to maintain.  Thanks in advance.]

Graham, Graham, Graham...  All you had to do was ask!  We're
a helpful bunch here.  Well, at least as helpful as a poke in
the eye with a sharp stick.  :-)

The best way to have the FAQ is to install Perl on your own
machine, and then you get it for free.. along with nice
searching tools such as perldoc.  It also comes in HTML format,
as in the ActiveState install of Perl for win32 boxes.

And the great thing about having the FAQ [and knowing how to
quickly search in using perldoc], is that you can give great
answers which are a lot longer than what you would want to type
here, and have correct code.. and may cover potential problems,
such as:
[1] counters don't work the way people imagine them to;
and
[2] most counters are subject to Bad Things because the
    authors didn't read the FAQ and hence didn't use
    file locking to prevent occasional file corruption.

Ditto.

Twice.

Before posting any more hellos to all the other newsgroups, I would
suggest you go to news.announce.newusers and read the Usenet
information there.

Right.  And your reason for quoting the entire post was ?
