in reply to Frequency table and frequencypolygon

The frequency_distribution_ref() method of Statistics::Descriptive looks like it fits the bill for your frequency table.

You'll need to provide more information about your frequency polygon. There's lots of modules for creating graphics: what format did you want? do you have special requirements? what else can you tell us that would help us help you?

I am up to here now:
```use Statistics::Descriptive;
\$stat = Statistics::Descriptive::Full->new();

+,-5.30,0.61,6.31,0,7.83,-0.76,-3.33,4.24,6.90,2.40,6.27,2.01,1.56,0.4
+5,3.86,-3.49,2.54,1.66,2.19,0.57,1.78,5.22,2.35,0.82,-0.49,1.59,-3.45
+,-3.27,-0.16,3.86,0.29,9.63,3.38,3.43,1.54,-0.61,-4.28,1.20,-2.94,2.9
+0,6.17,0.35,2.20,7.31,11.63,6.83,-0.25,17.28,-4.45,5.01);
%f = \$stat->frequency_distribution(5);
for (sort {\$a <=> \$b} keys %f)
{
print "key = \$_, count = \$f{\$_}\n";
}

and I get:
```key = -0.784, count = 8
key = 3.732, count = 34
key = 8.248, count = 15
key = 12.764, count = 3
key = 17.28, count = 1

How can I plot it now? I want something like:
