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.

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.
