=head1 DESCRIPTION

The GD.Graph.lines plugin provides an interface to the GD::Graph::lines
class defined by the GD::Graph module. It allows one or more (x,y) data
sets to be plotted as y versus x lines with axes and legends.

See L<GD::Graph> for more details.

plugins for the Template Toolkit (2001).
