( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The GD.pm library does what you seem to want, and it doesn't suck. At least as far as I've used it.

You can initialise from PNG, Jpeg, WBMP,GD or XBM formats, for others you might need to shop around the CPAN a bit and see what turns up.

In addition to simple setting of pixels, it also allows you to add text in various orientations, make polygons and draw lines to your heart's content.

For instance, this is a snippet of a script which draws a hexagon:

my @pts = ( [$x1 + $ba, $y1 - $b1], [$x1 - $ba, $y1 - $b1], [$x1-2*$ba, $y1 ], [$x1 - $ba, $y1 + $b1], [$x1 + $ba, $y1 + $b1], [$x1+2*$ba, $y1 ], ); my $poly = new GD::Polygon; $poly->addPt(@{$pts[$_]}) for (0..5); $im->polygon($poly, $cols{BG});

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
