This class was written to support multiple databases with a database wrapper module. I converted it for
MySQL in order to be published, without the calls to the wrapping functions.
To use it, you'll need to create an instance of the "users_online" class, like
$o_user = new users_online ( $REMOTE_ADDR );
The $REMOTE_ADDR contains the IP address of the user.
Then, the "main" method must be called. This method calls the necessary methods for the algorithm to work
This is a timeout approach that allows us to have a count of the number of users on a website at a given
time. It's not 100% accuratte.
(log users ip)
(check the database for the user's ip)
(if the ip exists)
(update the timestamp)
(if the ip does not exist)
(insert a new record)
(delete all records that have timeouted)

Just a 'minor' update so the counting stays what it should be !!!
