Subject: Should "use Image::Magick;" instead of shelling out to `convert` (symptom="Invalid Parameter - 90")
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 609b
The Gnuplot.pm file has:- sub convert { ... } which defines this at the way to invoke ImageMagick (which, of course, only works on Linux):- my $convert = 'convert'; ... my $cmd = "$convert $temp $temp".".$imgfmt 2>&1"; my $err = `$cmd`; The native perl module for Image::Magick would be a better way to call it. The symptom of the above is that Chart::Gnuplot says this on windows platforms:- Invalid Parameter - 90 rather than producing any output. (the workaround for windows users, is to set the 'output' parameter to a .ps file - which skips the ImageMagick conversion completely.)
