Note: PERL/CGI Scripts should only attempted by the computer savy. (you know who you are)!

Counters

To add a counter to your page is fairly simple. Add this line to your HTML page where you would like the counter to appear:
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?df=username.dat" align=absmiddle>
where "username" is replaced by your username.

There are several additional options that you may change. For example the style of numbers or the color of the border or even whether the border exist. These are all talked about in the counter help file.
