in reply to Drawing Graphs

If you want extreme accuracy, you should be using a vector graphics format instead of a raster format. This reasoning would lead to using SVG instead of GD::Graph.

The accuracy of raster graphics is limited by the number of pixels in the graph. With vector graphics, accuracy can be achieved by zooming or rendering on a high-resolution device.

It should work perfectly the first time! - toma

    SVG also gives you the benefit of XML, you can apply XSLT or what have you to raw XML data. The svg module is excellent and I understand that it can withstand exceptionally heavy server loads.

    SVG also has the benefit of being fully scriptable, and an accepted standard.

    If you make something idiot-proof, eventually someone will make a better idiot.
