    The CGI portion of it should all be the same - just look at what the perl and php scripts are sending to the screen, and that's what you should send to the screen. Two options: Send an HTML file that has the image in an <img> tag (for formatting purposes, I would use this method), or to send JUST the picture, you'd have to look into MIME types, etc... Personally I never did that. Try the IMG tag method, or if that's a problem let me know.
