One of my clients is using a free PERL counter on his homepage. It will not show up using Opera or NN6.01. There is no size attributes in the code, is there something to fix this?

Netscape is sometimes picky about the content type - Is the script outputting a content-type header (image/gif or image/jpeg?)

Here is what I dug from the script:

print ("Content-type: image/x-xbitmap\n\n"); #x-xbitmap

I am no pro at PERL, can I change this?

yes, switch "x-xbitmap" to "gif" if it's a gif, or "jpeg" if a jpeg file.

BUT, if it is an xbm (x-xbitmap) - (and you change to gif or jpeg) it will not display anywhere:

See [www-eng.llnl.gov ]

Try the test image on different browsers.

I changed it and now it does not show up in any browser. :)

I gess it has to be a bitmap image since the script generates the image. I will get him another free counter, as long it does not rely on some other server.

Thanks guys!

<added> Thanks for the link bo!</added>

Oh sorry. I thought you meant it WAS a gif and the content type was wrong?

I can't imagine someone putting a windows bitmap file in for a counter!? There are many browsers that won't show a windows bitmap.

I guess it is OK for a free script. The conceptor probably picked this one because everyting is written in French (his native language) and was easyer to install for him. I installed him a counter using prebuilt gifs and it works fine. The problem with this new one is that it tics on every reloads.
