I can't reproduce your output, but here is a simplified version of your code that creates an output PNG file for me (if I input some simple numbers in a file):
use strict; use warnings; use GD::Graph::histogram; my $input = 'distance.txt'; unless(open(INPUT, $input)) { die "\nCannot open input\n"; } my @data; while(my $line = <INPUT>) { chomp $line; push @data, sprintf ("%.1f\n", $line); } my $graph = new GD::Graph::histogram(400,600); $graph->set( y_label => 'Count', x_label => 'Distances', title => 'Histogram', x_labels_vertical => 1, bar_spacing => 0, shadow_depth => 1, shadowclr => 'dred', transparent => 0, ) or warn $graph->error; my $image = $graph->plot(\@data) or die $graph->error; open( IMG, '>' . 'out.png' ) or die $!; binmode IMG; print IMG $image->png;

Post a few lines of your input file (inside "code" tags).

Your $filename variable is undefined because you didn't pass any arguments to your "main" sub. @_ holds args passed to a sub. Also, you keep clobbering your @data when you assign it to @_ (which is empty).

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.
