same problem, unfixed for 2 years! yeesh. I am using 5.8.0 with libgd.so.2.0.0, GD 2.16. Same error for ex2.pl. For some reason the write_jpeg routine fails to make a filehandle and passes an undef to GD. Error is now: Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/GD.pm line 183. [guest - Sat Jun 8 04:03:49 2002]: Show quoted text

On my testing platform (GD-Dashboard-0.04, GD-2.30, gd-2.0.33, Perl 5.6.0, AIX 5.1), this failure (which also occurs during 'make test') was caused by the use of a DOS type directory separator in the filespec used to create the GD::Dashboard object in test.pl. That is: my $d1 = new GD::Dashboard(FNAME=>'examples\m1.jpg'); caused GD::Image to fail when attempting to open the file that was actually located at 'examples/m1.jpg'. Changing the separator to match my platform allowed make test to run to completion. Perhaps the author could move test.pl to the examples subdirectory then launch the tests from there rather than pass the dir separator as above.
