import string

print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"

fileRead = open('count.txt', 'r')

intHits = string.strip(fileRead.read())

# print "<p>intHits = " + intHits + "</p>"

if intHits == '':
	intHits = 0

fileRead.close()

intHits = string.atoi(intHits) + 1

fileWrite = open('count.txt', 'w')
fileWrite.write(str(intHits))
fileWrite.close

# followed by a long print """...""" containing
# the html template that uses the counter data.

# End counter code :::

Pretty simple, but it works...
