The GD.Graph.pie3d plugin provides an interface to the GD::Graph::pie3d class defined by the GD::Graph module. It allows an (x,y) data set to be plotted as a 3d pie chart. The x values are typically strings.

Note that GD::Graph::pie already produces a 3d effect, so GD::Graph::pie3d is just a wrapper around GD::Graph::pie. Similarly, the plugin GD.Graph.pie3d is effectively the same as the plugin GD.Graph.pie.

See GD::Graph3d for more details.
