I am trying to use Text::Graph and it says it is called as follows:
my $graph = Text::Graph->new( 'Bar' ); print $graph->to_string( [1,2,4,5,10,3,5], labels => [ qw/aaaa bb ccc dddddd ee f ghi/ ] +, );
I am looking through a database result set and generating what I thought was an "array" as follows:
while (@rowdata = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { push (@chart_data, $rowdata[2]+0); push (@chart_labels, $rowdata[0].' '.$rowdata[1].':00'); } $graph->to_string(@chart_data, labels=>@chart_labels);

The issue is that my "array" craps out when I call

as I do not think it is the "same kind of array" that it is expecting.

How do I create the kind of "array" the example call is expecting?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
