in thread CGI Image on localhost

I mean, did you do any of that? It seems like you're not trying to solve your own problem and want us to guess what's wrong for you.

The image is not displaying. WHY isn't it displaying?? Have you looked at the source of the HTML and see how it's refrenceing the picture? We can't guess what the IMG tag is pointing to. if you

r images are located at http://localhost/images/myimage.jpg and in the generated HTML it's http://localhost/somethingelse/myimage.jpg then that's your problem. Your quesion is like me saying "My Car won't start. Why?"

NO I was not trying to get you to solve my problem.

I wrote the HTML myself and was only asking how do I link to it from a different folder

I.E. CGI SCRIPT "Apache2\cgi-bin\script.cgi"
HTML       "Apache2\data\home.html"
IMAGES     "Apache2\htdocs\images\image.jpg"
I wanted to know what should I put in the HTML to let me link to the IMAGES from the CGI SCRIPT. I knew that I could simply put in F:\foo\bar\Apache2\htdocs\images\image.jpg but I didn't WANT to do this as, on a remote server I wouldn't have access to the root directory e.g. F:\. I wanted to know how do you go link in the HTML down one directory and up two.

or

should I just generate the HTML using perl and CGI and maybe HTML::Template. or something like that.

I was just asking for help
