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 ...

    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;-)

      try this:
      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";
      (notice the single quotes and the backslashes...)

      What is the result?

      []s, HTH, Massa (κς,πμ,πλ)

        Result: util.c: Invalid argument

        If I comment the gnuplot line and use the bat file approach the message is: C:\workspace\Testbed>"C:\gnuplot\binaries\wgnuplot.exe" \tmp\yZ35R2dy8v/plot

        I think I am developing an understanding why it's not working, see my response to BrowserUK.

        Cheers,
        dHarry
