Recently I used GD and GD::Graph to do some graphing for a Web application. It originally ran under Windows and ActivePerl, then later on FreeBSD. Make sure you install all the required libraries both up and down the "chain" of modules. However, it appears to work just fine for me. Of course, with the new version of GD, you can only output PNG graphics (maybe JPG too) -- no GIFs. Too bad, I say. However, PNG seems to be supported on NS4+|6+ & IE5+, so it's not that bad of an option.
Follow-up question: Anyone know an easy Perl way to convert PNG graphics to GIF? Or even better, a way to output GIF graphics with the new version of GD? Just curious.
