in reply to Chart::Gnuplot and Windows XP

Has anybody made Chart::Gnuplot with gnuplot work under Windows XP? Or is this yet another reason to change OS?!
Wow, just wow, the drama :)

# Create chart object and specify the properties of the chart my $chart = Chart::Gnuplot->new( output => "fig/simple.png", title => "Simple testing", xlabel => "My x-axis label", ylabel => "My y-axis label", .... gnuplot => "dramaqueen.exe", );

    Bless you brother, I completely missed the gnuplot => "path to exe" option. However, also in this case I get an Invalid Parameter - 90 error message.

      Based on your other reply, it seems that you are mixing "/" and "\" directory separators in your chart's file name. Try not to... :-)

      the file name should either be
      \tmp\NTEVfipQVM\plot or
      /tmp/NTEVfipQVM/plot but not
      \tmp\NTEVfipQVM/plot ...

      []s, HTH, Massa (κς,πμ,πλ)

        It's not me mixing up "/" and "\", judge for yourself:

        use strict; use warnings; use Chart::Gnuplot; my $chart = Chart::Gnuplot->new( output => "c:/tmp/test.png", title => "Simple testing", xlabel => "My x-axis label", ylabel => "My y-axis label", gnuplot => "C:/gnuplot/binaries/wgnuplot.exe", ); my $dataSet = Chart::Gnuplot::DataSet->new( func => "sin(x)" ); $chart->plot2d($dataSet); print "Done...\n";

        Resulting in the familiar error message;-)

      However, also in this case I get an Invalid Parameter - 90 error message

      I'm starting to get the feeling that the gnuplot executable and wgnuplot.exe must take different arguments.

      Cheers,
      Rob
      Hmm, works for me :/

      I used gp424win32.zip from here.

      I also removed DIR => '/tmp' from Gnuplot.pm, because I like my existing temp directory just fine.

        Hmm, I use exactly the same stuff. I think I redo the installation of both and try again. What Perl and what version of Chart::Gnuplot do you use?

        Cheers
        dHarry
