in thread Image::Magick "geometry" argument?

Actually, I like ImageMagick (the tool itself) very much, it is very powerful, and with plugins like GhostScript even more so. I just didn't like the Perl interface. Mind you, it was quite some time ago I tried it last. It might have grown better.

I haven't used GD much, but I've seen what others do with it, and that is likewise a very good package from what I can see. What one uses is probably mostly a matter of what is appropriate for the task at hand and what one likes. Though I *think* that GD is more for creating images, while ImageMagick is more suited to manipulating existing images. That is, if you want to produce charts, graphs or anything like that, GD is probably much better. If you want to create thumbnails for a huge photoalbum, then ImageMagick sure is a great tool (and here I don't know about GD).

[hippo]: The more I look at this code, the more $x is a plain old scalar and the more this condition will never be true. I'm calling it a bug at this point.
[hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
[Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
[Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
[Eily]: oh, boolean context uses the "" overload if no bool overload has been defined
[Eily]: (I wondered if overloading bool was actually necessary)
