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

I suspect, but am not in a position to confirm just now, that the problem is this forward slash:

\tmp\NTEVfipQVM/plot ................^

And that if you modified Chart::Gnuplot something along the lines of:

sub new { my ($class, %hash) = @_; # Create temporary file to store Gnuplot instructions if (!defined $hash{_multiplot}) # if not in multiplot mode { my $dirTmp = tempdir(CLEANUP => 1, DIR => '/tmp'); ########### change here $hash{_script} = $^O eq 'MSWin32' ? "$dirTmp\plot" : "$dirTmp/ +plot";

Then it might work.

Of course, there are probably other places (like the line above) that might need similar treatment--and there are certainly better ways (File::Spec and friends) of making the path handling properly cross-platform--, but a few simple changes like this might allow you to get on with your work.

And if you fed what changes you need, back to the module author, they might be able to integrate them back into the next release.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
