perl example:

#! /usr/bin/perl
$|=1;
print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";

$file = "count.txt";
open(FILE, "$filename")||die "open file $filename error $!\n";
line=<FILE>;
($name, $count)=split(/=/, $line);
$count = $count + 1;
close<FILE>
printf "you are the %d vistor\n" "$count"
$file = "count.txt";
open(FILE, ">$filename")||die "open file $filename error $!\n";
print "$name=$count"
close<FILE>

you are right , it's a perl cgi, to use it , for example you use unix box and netscape webserver. you should:
1. should install perl, and make a cgi dirctory in the web server setting, say "cgi"
2. in your html file, put a href:
   <a href="cgi/perlname.pl" > </a>
3. put the perl file to the cgi directory.
