I'm curious how I would create a web counter using perl/cgi...

Anyone have any suggestions?

I don't need anything fancy, don't care about IP checking...

Thanks!

use Fcntl qw(:DEFAULT :flock);

sysopen (FH, "counter.dat", O_RDWR | O_CREAT, O666) or die "cannot write to counter: $!";
flock (FH, LOCK_EX) or die "flock-error: $!"; #lock the file

#read counter data here, increase it and write it back to file here

flock (FH, LOCK_UN) or die "flock-error: $!"; # unlock the file

close FH;
