Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
However, I would like to get away from perl and use PHP instead. Is there any way to do this kind of image creation using PHP? Or am I stuck with calling a perl function from PHP?
Say the program to build the image is build_img.cgi and is located in a cgi directory and my PHP is located in one of my web folders. How would I call the cgi script from a PHP program?
Knowles nailed the links that I was going to post but I haven't tried this yet either. I have been toying with some ideas I have for using it but haven't really had the time to do it yet.
Keep us posted I would be interested to hear how it works for you. Those links should get you what you need.
I guess that means I will make time to learn this, always nice when someone pays for you to learn new tricks though. ;)
I use PHPlot by Afan Ottenheimer. It allows me to create various charts and graphs on the fly into various graphics formats.
You can find his stuff here: [sourceforge.net...]
