You don't really provide a lot of context - is this code in a CGI script? are you trying to display it from Tk?

The changes you make to an Imager object won't be displayed or written anywhere until you call the write method.

There's both sample code and documentation showing how to return an image from a CGI script.

If you want to see what an image looks like from the console, for example, if you're fiddling with the code and want to see what you're producing, write the image to a file and then use some sort of image viewer to view the image.

Another option is to use Tk to view the image, but it's kind of clumsy:

#!perl -w use strict; use Tk; use Tk::Photo; use MIME::Base64; use Tk::PNG; use Imager; my $image = Imager->new(xsize=>100, ysize=>100); # draw something simple here, you'll probably do something more comple +x $image->box(filled=>1, color=>'blue'); $image->box(filled=>1, color=>'red', xmin=>20, ymin=>20, xmax=>79, ymax=>79); my $image_data; $image->write(data =>\$image_data, type=>'png') or die "Cannot save image: ", $image->errstr; # supplying binary data didn't work, so we base64 encode it $image_data = encode_base64($image_data); my $main = MainWindow->new; my $tk_image = $main->Photo(-data => $image_data); $main->Label(-image=>$tk_image)->pack; MainLoop;

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.
