GrandFather has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying the sample code (see below) from the Image::Magick::Brand module using a .jpg and .gif file to produce a .jpg and the program crashes. Is there a known problem or some version conflict, or am I likely to have installed something incorrectly?

I'm using Active State Perl v5.8.7 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread, ImageMagick-6.2.4-Q16 and Image::Magick::Brand 0.01 (installed using ppm).

use Image::Magick::Brand; my $b = new Image::Magick::Brand; # Required parameters $b->brand( source => 'x.gif', target => 'xjpg', output => 'xb.jpg' );

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.
