Counter Library For Count 2.x

Just cut and paste the following <img...> line(s) into your html code or Insert the line within your frontpage editor.

The keywords in the query strings can be separated by & or |

  <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=10&df=x.dat">

Random digits. Wrapped frame is with default color and asked thickness.

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?frgb=ffd700&df=y.dat">

The wrapped frame is of the asked color and default thickness. The color is used as hex string. Note, DO NOT add # before the string as you use with Netscape. In query string, if you use a #, everything after # is ignored. So, be careful.

or you use can use the RGB triplets like:

 <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?frgb=255;215;0&df=z.dat">

or you even use the color name. You have to add this support while you configure using the Count-config script.

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?frgb=gold|df=a.dat">

Comma can be displayed

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0|df=b.dat|comma=T">


<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0|rotate=Y|df=c.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0&degrees=180|df=d.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0&degrees=90"df=e.dat>

The first counter is rotated default 270 degrees toward right, no angle is specified as rotate keyword is used.

Digit Styles

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=B|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=B|frgb=69;139;116&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=C|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=D|ft=3|df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=2&frgb=000000&dd=E|df=x.dat">

These are the supplied digit styles. You can use digits from other sources. Just create a directory inside digits directory, rename the digits to zero.gif, one.gif....nine.gif and use the directory name with dd.

Change any color

Change green color to red

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?df=x.dat|srgb=00ff00|prgb=ff0000">

Negate the colors

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?netate=T&dd=A|df=x.dat">

Note that the digit color is negated but the frame is not.


A specific color of the digits can be made transparent on the fly. Note the counter program does not care if your gif images are transparent or not, you have to tell explicitly which color to make transparent. Here we will make the white color of the digit style transparent. We will not use any frame either, just to make it look simple.

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=E|ft=0|tr=T|trgb=ffffff">

You can use the RGB triplets for the color like:
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=E|ft=0|tr=T|trgb=255;255;255">

Make the black color of the digit style A transparent:

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=000000&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=0;0;0&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=black&df=x.dat">

Make the green color of the digit style A transparent:

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=00ff00&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=0;255;0&df=x.dat">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=A|tr=T|trgb=green&df=x.dat">

Hide the counter

You can keep the counter hidden if you like. You can do this by sh=0. The hit will be recorded but the counter will not be displayed. A 1x1 transparent GIF image is written which gives the illusion. You can use the no-increment feature for monitoring those hits to a secret page (described later>

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?sh=0|df=x.dat">

A hidden counter is up there.

Monitor counter hits

You might have kept your counter hidden (or not). You can monitor the hits from another page just specifying the datafile and the keyword incr=F

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?incr=F|df=page1.dat">
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?incr=F|df=page2.dat">
    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?incr=F|df=page3.dat">

Number of digits

Say you want to display the counter in 5 digits only.

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?md=5|df=x.dat">

or you do not want to left pad with zero, you want to display exact digits.

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?pad=0|df=x.dat">


You can display a string literally. The valid characters in a string are 0123456789,:-ap

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?lit=0123456789">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=B&lit=0123456789">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=C|lit=0123456789">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=D&lit=0123456789">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?ft=0&tr=1&trgb=ffffff|dd=E|lit=0123456789">
<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?lit=a1,456-:p">

Counter as clock

Display time in 12 hr format.

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?display=clock">

Display time in 24 hour format.

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?display=clock|tformat=24">

Display date

<img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?display=date">

Use timezone parameter to display time or date of any place in the world.
