I have a web page and I want to place there a graphical visitors counter of my own, i.e. not to get it from another server. I have the right to execute cgi scripts on my Linux server. I would like the graphic images of the digits
to be built in the script (i.e. not in external files) if possible. Please send such a script and explain me how to install it since I am new to CGI programming.

I would recommend that you pick up gdlib written by Thomas Boutell.
This will help you create and display gif's from within a cgi script.
