in reply to Re: Flat File Database & GD::Graph (REVISITED)
in thread Flat File Database & GD::Graph (REVISITED)

That didn't work.
The reason why I used

my @data = ( [ qw ( $date ) ], [ qw ( $aaa_partners ) ], [ qw ( $aaa_arf ) ], );

was because the GD::Graph module allows you to format your data without having to use quotes and commas. like so:
$graph->set( dclrs => [ qw(green pink blue cyan) ] );

right? ...remind me not to drink 6 cups of coffee in one sitting. ;)

    I see your problem.

    Try to use arrays for $date and so on:

    (untested)

    while (<HANDLE>) { chomp; @temp1 = split(/\|/, $_); $domain = unpack ("A5", $temp1[17]); push @date, $temp1[1]; push @aaa_partners, $temp1[4]; push @aaa_arf, $temp1[5]; } close(HANDLE); my @data = ( \@date, \@aaa_partners, \@aaa_arf );
      while (<HANDLE>) { chomp; @temp1 = split(/\|/, $_); $domain = unpack ("A5", $temp1[17]); push @date, $temp1[1]; push @aaa_partners, $temp1[4]; push @aaa_arf, $temp1[5]; } close(HANDLE); my @data = ( \@date, \@aaa_partners, \@aaa_arf );

      still doesn't work. Is it because GD::Graph is really picky as to how the multidimensional arrays are formatted? Please enlighten me if anyone has had any experience working with text file databases and the GD::Graph module.

    GD::Graph module allows you to format your data without having to use quotes and commas. like so:
    $graph->set( dclrs => [ qw(green pink blue cyan) ] );
    It is not the feature of GD::Graph module that is letting you write code like this. It is the magic of the qw operator. Please see the Quote and Quote-like Operators section in perlop.
