After passing on the dark side of the planet,
photographed the other,somewhat more illuminated hemisphere of
Mercury. The north pole is at the top,two-thirds down from which
is the equator.
This is a relatively simple Perl program that can be used as a CGI
to manage a gallery of images and display them at random (or not so random).
There is an example to the right. Reload the page, and you will get a
different image over there (there are only 10 images in the gallery,
so repeats are possible).
Just place the
random_gallery.conf in a directory with image files,
and put the image files that you want included in the gallery into
random_gallery.conf. The instructions for how to do
so are in the
random_gallery.conf file. If you want
to, you can also rename
index.cgi, and it should work just fine. The documentation
for random_gallery is within the POD of the
file. You can read its POD with '
from your command line.
Patches, and suggestions are always welcome.
The images that I use in the example gallery
are from NASA's Planetary
