Hi there, I was curious to know if there is a way to track visitors for instance, obtaining almost everything about them, like how long a certain page was viewed for. Of course as in the title, I would very much like to find something using cgi and perl if necessary. Any help?
If you do not have the concept of a user then you only have the ip address to go with and this is a very inaccurate identification mechanism.
You can never tell how long a page of yours was viewed only the time between page requests from a user. They might never come back to you or go an view another site or make a cup of coffee in the interim.
