Perl Graphics Packages

Perl Graphics Packages

Perl Graphics Packages

I am using Active State Perl under NT 4.0 SP4. I am using the "GD" graphics module to generate on-the-fly GIF images in my Perl scripts for display on the web. This GD package works but is pretty basic and somewhat limited and tedious to use. I was wondering if there are any other better graphics packages for Perl out there?

RE: Perl Graphics Packages

Depends what you mean by graphics. Are you talking about charting data? If so, try the Chart module. This uses GD as a backend, and has various charts available. I use it under Unix, so you'll need to check if there's a Win32 version available.

RE: Perl Graphics Packages

Thanks! Chart was exactly what I was looking for. It's a real time saver compared to just using GD alone.
