Retrieves image dimensions

The Image::Size module for Perl lets you retreive image dimensions (and type, when unknown) from graphics files in a variety of common formats. It is a pure Perl extension requiring no C compilation or XS linking. It is meant to be used in CGI application development to allow run-time derivation of image sizes, so you don't have to hard code such data in applications or HTML templates.
