if you are using PERL, this is how you do it.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl

$var="butterfly";

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<img src=\"$var.gif\">\n";

Ok. let say your web servers root is...

/www/server_root

& your images are in .../www/server_root/images

so the full path to butterfly gif is /www/server_root/images/butterfly.gif

then your print statement would be ...


#!/usr/local/bin/perl

$var="/images/butterfly.gif";

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<img src=\"$var\">\n";

and your image should be displayed on screen!!
