Limits/Chokes the number of downloads of a given file

I feel like I've looked everywhere... I'd like to find a script that lets me set a limit on the number of times a given file can be dowloaded, period. Once the limit has been reached, the link would be deactivated, or at least send an email to me so I can fix it manually. Only problem is, I honestly can't afford to buy a professional script of this sort.

A tutorial would be appreciated, as well, if concisely written.

Thank you for your time.

Re: [genmal] Limits/Chokes the number of downloads of a given file

This cgi script can be modified to add a counter for a limit on downloads, as well as being disabled after a count is reached.
