  • Good work on taking the distro over. Any chance you could add some example output, a la that which comes with Chart::Strip? Judging from your description of the other radial modules I'm not likely to use either of them, but in general having examples really helps when it comes to choosing a graphics distribution.
    • All in good time :)

      There are several real world examples I can include from the project I'm doing, as well as some that will give a more broader understanding of how to get the best out of the module, so I'll include those in the next release. If you have any other suggestions for improvements, please feel free to send them my way.

    • I'll have a look at barbies changes to GD::Chart::Radial and try and use that to update the Imager version I wrote - they're both pretty similar internally.

  • Every time someone uses GD::* god kills a kitten. Please please please please please use PostScript (or PostScript::Simple if you can't write the stuff yourself) instead. It's a lot easier to use than GD::*, it's easier to build, and the results look better.
    • When I have a little more time I might just do that. I haven't looked at postscript in a very long time, even then I wouldn't have confidently said I was able to code it. Looks like there is also a PostScript::Graph, which might be a good start too.

      However, in this case I wanted something that was pretty much there, so I didn't have to spend too much time on it. The pretty side of it will come later :)
