in reply to histogram

i want to add option ASCII stars, to make it graphical, like this: -a|--ascii <num of stars> In this case, let's say I want 100 stars maximum.. what number do i need to divide the numeric values to get number of stars per lane? thanks,

    Hi

    if you always want your highest category to be represented by 100 stars, you have to normalise all the values multiplying by 100 / $max_value, like this (around line 98):

    if ($config{ascii}) { require List::Util; my $max_value = List::Util::max(@frequencies); for my $index (0 .. $#frequencies) { my $length = $frequencies[$index] * $config{ascii} / $max_value; print {*STDOUT} $labels[$index], "\t", '*' x $length, "\n"; } exit 0; }
    Of course, you have to add the option at the beginning.

    perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

    Io ho capito... ma tu che hai detto?
