    freak: you have asked this question several times in the last week.

    it is likely you are trying to write some kind of script to artificially inflate some sites' stats.

    inflating these stats will be based on how the website registers the view, some may just keep track of page views (as in "index.html"), other systems will track how many times a particular item in a page, usually an image are loaded. the system could even be based on a browser having to perform some kind of task in the background with javascript in order to register a hit. it all depends.

    the perl LWP modules are documented very well as to what they do. your job is to figure out what the stats system requires you to do in order to register a stat.

    do your own research and please stop wasting the monks' time.

    perl -e'$_="nwdd\x7F^n\x7Flm{{llql0}qs\x14";s/./chr(ord$&^30)/ge;print'

    It depends on how the 'Spy Log' is set up. The ones I've seen just count accesses, so you visiting three times would count as three.

    Now, if you look in the access logs for your web server, you'd probably also see three visits, but this time(1, see below) you'll see the same IP for each visit.

    Life is short: get busy!

    1. Notwithstanding dynamic IP arrangements like AOL, DHCP, etc., etc., etc.
