Line Graph Image Manipulationby bkiahg (Pilgrim)
|on Jun 25, 2008 at 21:06 UTC||Need Help??|
bkiahg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello Wise Monks,
I once again come looking for a point in the right direction. What I'm trying to accomplish is taking an array of numbers and turning them into a line graph. I've looked into both GD and ImageMagick and always seem to get lost trying to get either installed on the windows server I'm working on. Here are some examples of what I'm doing:
my @array = ('98','95','83','75','98','95','83','75','98','95','83','75'); # Etc.
into Image to be produced.
The 2 questions I have are:
1. Which one (GD or ImageMagick) would be best suited to handle this type of application? And...
2. Where should I look to find some help installing and implementing this on a Windows 2003 server?
Thank you very much in advance.
Update: Heres a link to GD for windows in case anyone else stumbles across this looking for help. http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/gd.htm
