Hi all,

I need an easy way to detect the width and height of an image file (.gif and .jpg) in one of my perl scripts.

Can anyone help me?
Thanks!

BA.

I know that, but I was actually hoping I could do without having to install an additional module on the webserver (which my host doesn't allow).....

I thought there was a way to determine the width and height of an image, with just some simple script? Well, I guess I was wrong.....

How do I normally install a perl module on my webserver? Does my host even have control over that? Isn't a module also just a lot of code?

Thanks!

just write "ppm install image::size" in your shell to install the image::size module...

If you cant install a module on your webserver, you should download the module Image::Size and copy the needed code from Size.pm into your code.

Isnt as easy as it sounds!
