I've just tried and found GD installed on my Win2k-Box/ActivePerl 631. I executed the first code from perldoc GD, and it seems to work fine...
# create a new image
$im = new GD::Image(100,100);
# allocate some colors
$white = $im->colorAllocate(255,255,255);
$black = $im->colorAllocate(0,0,0);
$red = $im->colorAllocate(255,0,0);
$blue = $im->colorAllocate(0,0,255);
# make the background transparent and interlaced
# Put a black frame around the picture
# Draw a blue oval
# And fill it with red
# make sure we are writing to a binary stream
# Convert the image to PNG and print it on standard output
ëPNG ..... and so on
But somehow, I've never worked with graphical graphs yet.
