[Perl] graphical counter

you are mixing 2 ways to do this.

1a) your page itself is a CGI and will create a series of
   <img src=/7.gif>
   <img src=/3.gif>

    when the counting reaches 73

1b) your page is static with SSI and the SSI part creates tha above
    series of image inclusins.
    (I think you said you cannot use SSI on these files then this
    is not for you.)

2) your page calls <img src=/cgi-bin/count.pl>
   and count.pl creates one gif file of 73 and sends it back.

2) Has a soultion I mentioned in my prev mail.
1) Should be fairly simple if the file can be itself a CGI file
or can have SSI in it and you don't have to output any 
strange graphical mime type just simple text/html.
