Count 2.5 Hit Counter
is a CGI program to keep record of the raw hits of a Web page. It generates a GIF image of the number of
hits and returns to the browser as an in-lined image. The program also has a run-time option not to show the digit
images, this way the hits can be kept without displaying it. The hits can be be monitored without incrementing from
a separate page as well. Almost all of the features are run-time options.
