display image through cgi python html

Hi,
I'm trying to display image through my cgi script in HTML page
via <img src="image.cgi">

Can you give me an example, please?
What should be in the cgi script to display it?

Here is what I have in image.cgi but it is incorrect and i'm not able to
find it on the web.

#!/usr/bin/python
print "Content-Type: image/png\n"
print 'image.png'

thanks,
Lada

You have to print the image, not the name. Read the binary file and print
it.

You have to print the image, not the name. Read the binary file and print
it.
As in:

#!/usr/bin/python
data = open('image.png', 'rb').read()
print "Content-Type: image/png\nContent-Length: %d\n" % len(data)
print data

regards
Steve
