Daily Hit Counter
There are many ways to track usage of a website. The simplest way is with a hit counter, which will give you a raw count, but will not tell you how many people are visiting on any giving day. Utilizing the current date function a text document will be created utilizing the date as part of its naming convention in the same directory (providing that directory has user write access, you may need to place the documents in your cgi-bin depending on your provider) as the page we want the counter to appear on. The .txt file is first read to gain the value of the last hit count, one is added to that number, written to the .txt document, closed and the counter value is written as text to the page. If there is no text document (counter) for the current date one is automatically created. Refresh the content of the output page for a more complete illustration of the working counter.

counter = counter + 1 

' Close the text object.
