2.5 is a CGI
program to keep record of the raw hits of a Web page. It generates
a GIF image of the number of hits and returns to the browser
as an in-lined image. The program also has a run-time option
not to show the digit images, this way the hits can be kept
without displaying it. The hits can be be monitored without
incrementing from a separate page as well. Almost all of the
features are run-time options.
