Nevermind, I just realized this is client-side, not server-side.

If your goal is just to display images from webservers, you might want to check out the feh tool. It kicks the butt of display. You can point it at a url and it will handle all of the download and display. It also has a param to automatically refresh/reload after x seconds. I use it to fullscreen a remote webcam on my setup at home and it's brilliant.

    ok, I went the feh website and downloaded the first one in the download list:
    Get feh-1.2.7.tar.gz here.
    now, where should I put the downloaded .tar file.
    and how do I use it the perl code.

    do I store the resulted set of charatere in a file and pass it the feh or what. Thank you for the effort.
