There are a couple of ways of telling whether someone is still looking at a page on your site. They're not pretty. Here's one:

Serve up framed pages. Arrange to "hide" a frame. In that hidden frame, set up a "watchdog timer" using a page with a meta refresh tag to a CGI on your site. The CGI keeps track of who is still out there polling, and returns the same page. After some suitable interval of not getting a poll, mark the user as logged out. You'll also need to use a cookie to distinguish people who may be sitting behind a firewall that's doing NAT (network address translation).

This works. People will throw bricks at you, but it does work.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
