CookieStats 1.0

CookieStats 1.0 is a small perl script that scans the cookies_log generated by Apache and produces a list of accessed pages and unique cookies. This has the effect of screening out duplicate accesses by single browsers and gives a relatively hard lower limit on the number of people accessing a page. Not all browsers support cookies, so some people are missed. This error is, however, under 10%.

Note: this is NOT 'hits': No matter how many times a user hits a page in a session, they only get counted once. It is meant to give a close idea how many *people* access a site or page.

An example of such a list is available. You can get the script here as well.

If you like and use these routines - let me know - I would love to hear about it.
