    Perhaps the GD::Graph set of modules will come in handy...

    I think this really needs to be said!

    I have no idea where to start.
    If you truely have *no idea* where to start, here is some advice that will help you today, tomorrow, and forever more. =)
    1. For Perl related information, use perldoc. This wonderful resource can be found online at or at your own commandline. Type  perldoc perldoc .
    2. For more Perl related information, use the Super Search.
    3. For Perl, and everything else imaginable: STFW. makes an excellent home page in your browser.

    If that statement (' idea where to start.') wasn't entirely true, and you've already had a look at the GD:: docs, try asking a more specific question.

    I'd suggest reading through this node (the whole thing, including all of the followups), and this document. Each give advice on how to ask more effective questions.

      Spot on. As an addendum, How to RTFM adresses the same issue. Some may find it a most useful reference to references.

      perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
