The idea behind this is that you typically already have images on your web page; so you replace the SRC of one of the images with a URL that routes through this logger, but still returns the image. So the browser doesn't know the difference, but the server does.

So what you should actually do is just use one of the images you already have on your site. You say that the image you want to use is at /home/username/www/cgi-bin/showpic/spacer.gif? That's not right. "showpic" is the name of the CGI script, so it can't also be a directory on the filesystem.

Let's say that you currently have an image like this on your web page:

<img src="/images/foo.gif">
And the actual filesystem location of this image is:
You would replace the IMG tag with this:
<img src="/cgi-bin/showpic/images/foo.gif">
And, in showpic (the CGI script), you'd set the $home variable to:
my $home = "/home/bar/www";
Make sense?

[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
