in reply to Question about using hash indexes with GD::Graph

I still don't think that will solve the problem of the error. I would agree with jeffa on how to format your data but your 2nd to the last line I think is what is hanging you up. This is my suggestion:

print IMG $gd->plot(\@data)->png;

    You are correct the error message that I am receiving is
    Can't call method "png" on an undefined value at line 9 +1, <STDIN> line 1.

    I am still running into trouble with the data. I have changed the code to read like follows
    my (@h,@c); push @h, $_->{'hour'} foreach(@{$data}); push @c, $_->{'count'} foreach(@{$data}); my $new = [ \@h, \@c]; print (\@new); #@data=(["1st","2nd","3rd"], # [9,4,7]); # I have a hash table with $data[$index]{'hour'} and $data[$index]{'c +ount'} # $graph= GD::Graph::lines->new(400,300); $graph->set( x_label => 'Hour', y_label => 'Transaction Volume', title => 'Number of transactions per hour', y_max_value => 20, y_label_skip => 1, y_tick_number => 1); #$gd = $graph->plot(\@data); open (IMG,'>file.png') or die $!; binmode IMG; print IMG $graph->plot(\@new)->png; close IMG;
    but when I run it I still receive the same error. If I uncomment the @data lines and plot to @data instead of @new it works. Any ideas?
      because $new is an array reference, so all you need to do is fill it in as $graph->plot($new)->png;
        Still getting the same error with the follwing line as the only change.
        print IMG $graph->plot($new)->png;
      $new is a already a reference to an array consisting of two arrayrefs. There is no such thing (yet) as @new in the code snippet you've posted. Try it with
      print IMG $graph->plot($new)->png;
      (instead of the \@new you have there now) and see what happens.

      use strict should have caught this. You *are* using, strict, aren't you?
