there are several modules for working with images -- GD, Imager, PerlMagick, probably many more. Is there some comprehensive-ish comparison of the offerings out there?

I usually use gifsicle for animated gifs. It works well. Then you can use any of GD, Imager or ImageMagick to make your frames, and feed them to gifsicle like

system("gifsicle -lforever $my_stuffl*.gif > $my_stuff.anim.gif") ;
for GD, try Text to animated pseudo-braille GIF and see Image::Magick GIF Animation Speed for ImageMagick usage.

    [SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
    [Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
    [Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
    [marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
    [choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
    [marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
    [marinersk]: choroba++
    [choroba]: it's a long running test, so it's normally skipped unless an env var is set
