Hi all,

I'm creating a counter form my site. I can keep track of the counter value itself but what I'm having help with is how to put the individual number gifs together to create a whole number. For example, if my counter has reached 1234, how do I put 1.gif, 2.gif, 3.gif and 4.gif together to create 1234.gif?

By the way, I doing this in C. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

What about this way:

--//--
int count = 1234;
char buff[10]; /* up to 9 cyphers */

char *curs;

sprintf(buff, "%d", count);
for(curs=buff; *curs; curs++)
  printf("<IMG SRC=\"%c.gif\">", *curs);
--//--

HTH, julio.
