SVG. Pfft.

[ #10632 ]

I've been working on a system that draws pretty graphs using SVG (via SVG.pm). And I've reached the point where the output is really quite nice.

The only black cloud on the horizon is that I have to incorporate the generated graphs into a Word document. Rasterizing the graphs looks really ugly, and whilst generating larger-than required images and scaling them down provides acceptable results when printed, the on-screen display is terrible.

I've therefore spent most of the day trying to work out how I can convert my SVG images to something like EPS. In theory, it should be possible, but in practice? Not on your nelly.

At least, not on *my* nelly.

I've tried Batik, ImageMagick, Ghostscript... All come to naught, in one way or another. I'm really not sure what to do now. I suspect it might be back to the drawing-board, so to speak...

SVG is pretty nice to play with though - at least, when you don't have to incorporate output into anything else... 8)
