in reply to Best module for generating Pie Charts and Bar Graphs

Since this is a web-based question, Apache::GD::Graph is optimal if you are using apache (duh). GD::Graph is the other basic graph module, but its implementation is not as lightweight as the Apache module, so if the graphs are generated dynamically, there will be slightly more overhead.

As for the other modules question, the answer is "Not Really." Frankly, GD::Graph is the end-all, be-all of graphing modules and is really useful almost anywhere.

HTH.



Code is (almost) always untested.

    That's the kind of answer I was looking for. Of course, I'll be running mod_perl, so Apache::GD::Graph will likely be what I will use. Thanks for the advice!

    GD::Graph is great but I became somewhat annoyed by its limitations. Lately I've been using ChartDirector, it gives you absolute control over every detail. It is commercial software, however.
