  • 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 :)
