	* Reverse DNS lookup before or during analysis, support DNS cache files,
	* WhoIS Links,
	* A lot of options/filters and plugins can be used,
	* Multi-named web sites supported (virtual servers),
	* Cross Site Scripting Attacks protection,
	* Several languages,
	* No need of rare perl libraries,
	* Graphical one page or framed reports,
	* Look and colors can match your site design,

I - 2) Requirements

	To use AWStats CGI script, you need the following requirements:
	* Your server must log web access in a log file you can read.
	* To run awstats, from command line, your operating system must be able
	  to run perl scripts (.pl files). To run awstats as a CGI (for real-time
	  statistics), your web server must also be able to run such scripts.
	  If not, you can solve this by downloading last Perl version at:
	  http://www.activestate.com/ActivePerl/ (Windows)
	  http://www.perl.com/pub/language/info/software.html (All OS)
