Re: Counters

Jerome,
Yes we have a program that throws data reports and puts them on a web page. I'd like to see how many people access this page. Currently the counter going now has this code:

WIDTH=60 HEIGHT=20 BORDER=0 HSPACE=4 VSPACE=2>

-------

I'd like to get it back to Zero, but I don't see how to set it back to Zero. Thanks

Re: Counters

The sites the provide web counters give the way to erase them. Usually you need to login somewhere in their home page, insert username and password and they show up a menu to control your counters.
Try searching for instructions in you web-counter provider site.

Re: Counters

Well,

AS you are not controlling the variables used to increment the counter, digits.com does, then you have to ask them to reset it to 0, or do it from your control panel in their site. It's explained at :

http://www.digits.com/faq.html#Change


Use this access page, you should be able to do it from there :

Re: Counters

attaching a perl script for an invisible counter.

Re: Counters

$filename="count.txt";
$FP = fopen ($filename,'r') or exit("unable to open counter file");
$count = (int) fread ($FP, filesize($filename));
fclose($FP);

$FP = fopen($filename,'w+') or exit("unable to open counter file");
echo "Count is $count";
++$count;
echo "Count is $count";
if(!fwrite($FP, $count)) {
exit("unable to write to counter file");
}

?>

a small php file.

to make this work, do this first.

echo 0 > count.txt

Re: Counters

Hello!

The only problem with the code of Balaji
is that if you will have two requests in
the same time than you will have problem.
What you need to do is also add a ability
when you work on the file to do a lock that
the other will wait.
