Default Problem with CGI Counter

Hi All,

I got a cgi script http://nss.nitc.ac.in/cgi-bin/counter.cgi
When i run this link directly it works. But if i try in one of my html pages (http://nss.nitc.ac.in/html/title.shtml or http://nss.nitc.ac.in/html/title.html) it is not showing the Counter. How can i show the counter in the webpage?

The CGI code am using is

# txcounter cgi
# © 2000 Jackie Hamilton - http://www.cgi101.com/
# this cgi increments a counter in a file, then prints out a line like
# "You are visitor number XXX."
# HTML code to call this:
# this requires server-side includes. You may need to rename your HTML
# file to a .shtml extension to make it work.
# note: be sure that the counter file is set WRITABLE by the httpd
# daemon owner or group. in Unix you'll need to 'chmod 775 countfile'
# or possibly 'chmod 777 countfile'.

$countfile = "/home/nss/web/html/counter";

$count = `cat $countfile`;
$count = $count + 1;
print INF "$count\n";

print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
print "Visitor: $count.<p>\n";

# the end.

Please suggest a solution...

Thanks and Regards,
Arun Mohan M P
