How would you determine the size of the image file automatically, if the font size was dynamic, without reserving a large image size?

Hmm, never done that. One idea: Generate a very large image, draw the text, use $font->bounding_box to get the dimensions of the drawn string, and finally crop the image accordingly.

How do I send the image to a web browser without saving the file first?

Try something like this:

my $img_data; $img->write(data=>\$img_data,type=>'png') or die "Cannot dump image: ", $img->errstr;

Now you've got the image in $img_data, so you can print it to STDOUT (or via CGI). If operating under CGI, don't forget to set the proper content-type.

  • 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).
