Chart::Manual - Chart user documentation index
Chart is a collection of modules for visualizing numerical data. It is designed for: (in that order) maximal flexibility, feature richness and minimal dependencies. It can write PNG and JPG images into files and STDOUT (for web and shell usage).
The early API is mostly borrowed from Martien Verbruggen's GIFgraph module.
Example programs with output for each chart type: Chart::Manual::Types
Ways to use Chart, broadly described: Chart::Manual::Workflows
Descriptions of all methods geared toward the user: Chart::Manual::Methods
The method set allows to directly change particular chart properties. All of these explained in detail with their acceptable and default values are sorted there by name and topic or type:
Much of what is documented here will be superseded by a new API provided by upcoming version 3.0. The old API will be discouraged but not deprecated, except maybe the module Chart::Composite and some properties. The new API will aply only to objects created by Chart->new(...);
