in reply to Chart::Gnuplot and Windows XP

Hi guys, very new in installing extensions of PERL. Want to use GNUPLOT for completing a PERL code. Using Win 7 professional (32 bit). Unpacked "Chart-Gnuplot-0.17.tar.gz" and created a "Chart" subdirectory in the lib directory (by intuition since I did not read instructions on installing perl extensions ==> hate to read complicated instructions!!)... apparently it starts working when trying an example but process gets stacked at the beginning of (line 5) since apparently the File::Copy extension can not do the "move" operation .... does anyone know how to deal with this problem?.... my knowledge of PERL is very limited... I am not an IT guy but just a common PERL user for some engineering tasks... I would appreciate any help on this matter but explained in a very simple way. Thanks in advance folks:

    windows comes with a convert.exe which is nothing like the imagemagick convert.exe

    You need to manage your %PATH, police your $ENV{PATH} / use Env '@PATH';
