in reply to The Door Server

It should be possible to use two different barcodes, to detect the difference between the door opening and the door closing (based on the order of the scans within a short interval) so you could list the current status (open or closed).

As to the code at hand ... why use open(TIME,"date|"); instead of localtime ?

You might also want to change it so it updates a data file with the value of i ... that way if the script dies for any reason, you still know the total.
