Graphics Moduleby KianTern (Acolyte)
|on Jan 11, 2009 at 14:34 UTC||Need Help??|
KianTern has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I looking for a way to accomplish the following.
Using a delimited text file, draw a box plot.
Sounds easy but there is a catch.
I need to be able to select one or multiple points in the box plot
and export the data to a new text file, or exclude them from the chart.
In short I need a graphics module that can respond to mouse/keyboard events
and will allow me to reasonably easy draw charts.
The only library I found that somewhat suits me is SDL, but it seems
to be more game oriented and I need scientific precision.
Will SDL work or is there another module available?
I know that Perl is not very well suited for scientific
software but unfortunately all the data parsing modules are
written in Perl and I don't have the time or the knowledge
to write this in another language
