Counter Example

You are visitor number 3723 (well, not really. This is just a demo).

You must have server-side includes turned on for this to work. Name your page with a .shtml extension or set execute permission on (depending on your web server configuration).

To insert a counter, add the following HTML:

You are visitor number <!--#exec cmd="../cgi-bin/" -->

and put in cgi-bin.

Or you could write the program in C++. To compile counter.cpp:

g++ counter.cpp -o counter
