Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I have successful created graphs using GD before, however, is it possible to identify the peaks and label the coordinates on the graph? Is this a math* og graph* module? Thanks

    AFAIK, not directly. For finding min/max you can use max-min function List::Util module on the array which you use for plotting.
    use List::Util qw(max min sum);
    As for the labels. I thought you it's you who put them in
    use GD::Graph::lines; my $my_graph = new GD::Graph::lines(); $my_graph->set( x_label => 'Label X', y_label => 'Label Y', title => 'Your Title');

      sorry, i mean labelling the peaks. perhaps place a number next to each peak on the graph

    A quick cpan search yields Chart::Graph, which has a interface to the mighty Gnuplot. I never used it, but it may be worth a look.


    holli, /regexed monk/

      I have used Chart::Graph before, with excellent success. It helps to know gnuplot fairly well first (you can read a good guide). There is a bit of a learning curve. Gnuplot and Chart::Graph are very powerful; as a result, it can sometimes take a bit of study and trial to get exactly what you want.

      Of course, the upshot is that you can usually get exactly what you want.


      The Eightfold Path: 'use warnings;', 'use strict;', 'use diagnostics;', perltidy, CGI or CGI::Simple, try the CPAN first, big modules and small scripts, test first.
