As you know there are always multiple request involved, one for the page and
one for every image.

I suggest generating the html page with Embperl and use a normal CGI script
(or a mod_perl Apache::Registry) script for generating the images. That's
the way I do it normaly and it works great!

Sorry, I don't have an example at hand, I could send you.


P.S. Please write any further questions to the Embperl mailing list, so
