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

Hi all, I have seen this thread, but it's a bit old

http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=347028

Would like to know what are the best modules available for creating graphs. I had used GD graphs for a long time, but at times it gives me some small problems. It works well but I'm looking for modules with little more flexibilities.

    I personally like GD::Graph, but take a look at the more recent State of the Ch(art) in Perl for other peoples experiences

    I think that GD is the best module for graphs. If you really want more "flexibilties", then post an example of your small problem. Simple errors can cause small problems that can escalate into major headaches later:).

    If you are not afraid of Javascript, then perhaps it's worth mentioning that YUI-3-3-0 was released yesterday and includes a Charts module that look pretty good (examples here).

    I use GraphViz for directed graphs
    for all other graphs, I have gotten excellent results producing a customer perl script for gnuplot. There are so many variations for this program, just take a look at the samples
    There are some modules such as Chart::Gnuplot that may also work, but I have not tested them.

    Would like to know what are the best modules available for creating graphs.

    All the modules available, naturally, those modules which aren't available are absolutely not the best :)
