Counting Downloads using log files

I would like to count the number of times a certain file has been downloaded from my website.

I have devised a way of saving the log file and counting the number of occurances.

Is there a way that I can output that number on screen?

You can read a text file into a variable using php, then print the variable tothe screen!

that's a superb idea.

Perhaps I could create cron job that will read the file every day so that my download count increases?
