Is there a simple method to stop browser cacheing the results of a cgi request. For instance, I have a cgi which writes out a gif on the fly and although the URL to this cgi looks the same every time:-

i.e.

<IMG SRC="/cgi-bin/image?block.gif">

the image produced is actually different. The browser caches the first image and will only show the latest version if you reload the page.
