I've had good success with GD::Graph, though it can be a bit tricky to install.

It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.

    Hey, k thanks will take a look at that. Were you on a linux machine? I'm on windows..do you think that will make it even more trickier?
      I was on a Solaris machine (which is probably one of the more problematic unix OSes, in my limited experience). I'm sorry that I can't answer your Windows question, as I've never done any perl installations under Windows.

      I have all the GD-modules installen on my Windows XP box without a problem. I used ppm The ActiveState repository only has the Perl 5.6 version modules but the University of Winnipeg repository ("Randy Kobes") has both 5.6 and 5.8.

    I've had nothing but problems with GD::Graph. In particular, I found it very hard to colour charts the way I wanted - and judicious use of colour can make your charts a *lot* more readable.

    So I wrote my own at work, based on PostScript. Sadly it's not Open Sores (yet), but it's very good :-) PostScript::Simple's arc method makes pie charts very easy indeed. 3D is a little tricky, but nothing that can't be solved by writing the PostScript yourself.
