Um, so you're asking if you can trigger some action based on access? There might be other web server options, but the basic options are to have your cgi program serve the file (but do it smart, Content-Length/Content-Range ...) or you can parse your webserver log files.

    If I can invoke the sound file by perl script that would be perfect as I could then make updates to the data file in the same script. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do that, and searching has not helped so far. Parsing the log files would be after the event and I need this to be live (simultaneous).
