Dear bronto,

though the above mentioned SVG::TT:Graph looks really very promising (and it already offers stunningly beautiful charts, especially in the line and pie charts sections), besides GD::Graph3d, the only others CPAN modules I'm aware of which offer the 3D histograms you asked for, are DBD::Chart and DBIx::Chart (they're both by the same author).
Here and here you can see some charts produced with them.

Chart is another interesting CPAN charting module, but it unfortunately does not offer the 3D histograms either.

I've tested all of them for a project I'm developing right now (and I've also made a patch to correct a GD::Graph bug about the value labels layout with the stacked bars histograms - I'll publish it on CPAN's RT ASAP).

The one that IMO produces the most beautiful and professionally looking charts is SVG::TT:Graph but, as already said, it does not offer 3D histograms yet.

I've also tried the Java based JFreeChart, but for various reasons (partly aesthetical, partly functional and partly of religion) I didn't find it completely satisfactory either.

The conclusion is that for my project, being under very tight time constraints, to have something fancier I had to resort to this commercial product I found, which fortunately offers also Perl bindings.

Ciao,
Emanuele.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
