popup url-rotation (links in CLEAN textfile)

Hey experts

Is there an easy way to rotate a list of url's in popups (automatic), with the following 4 demands:
1) The script must read the Url-list from a seperate textfile

2) The Urls can be both locale and global ones

3) The popups should stop after running the last Url from the textfile

4) Url-textfile should be easy the config., and should ONLY CONSIST of the links like:  

And therefore NOT like (ex. Array style):

Can anyone please help!

$cnt = 0;
$localpath = 'http://www.mywebsite.com/myfolder/';

while ($link = <LINKS>)
      $links[$cnt++] = $link;

(@time) = gmtime(time);
$rnd = $time[0] / 60 * $cnt;
$url = "$links[$rnd];

$url = $localpath.$url if ($url !~ /\Ahttp\:\/\//i);

print "Location: $url";


Should work.

I didn´t get what "The popups should stop after running the last Url from the textfile" means, sorry.
