Welcome to IWETHEY!

New sweet looking
but wouldn't qualify to me as "simple".

I may get one just for me though, cause it is pretty cheap.
Sure, understanding today's complex world of the future is a little like having bees live in your head. But...there they are.
New Simple enough.
Its programmatic and it basically is a feed it numbers and a few param and out comes a PNG/JPG/GIF... etc.

We also use pdftk to make PDFs and manipulate them, Also the combo of ChartDirector and ImageMagick to do additional labels, conversions and so on, works out really well.
New You do realize ...
You definition of "simple" probably runs about four pages single-spaced. :-P

New With 1/4" margin, 11x17 tabloid.
Yes. Simple enough is Plenty good enough.

If you establish APIs/script to run this shee... its something like this:

make_purty_pie_chart "my Pie Chart effort" 1 2 3 4 15 65 47 9000 200


(hah... caught myself doing a mode change and colon wq)
New Nah
I was just reviewing one of the sample scripts.
It is SIMPLE. it is nicely done. And it works in a blink on my system.
This seems to be a good programmatic solution, and it only costs $99.
It still want yours though.





#!/usr/bin/perl
use perlchartdir;

sub createChart
{
my $img = shift;

# Determine the starting angle and direction based on input parameter
my $angle = 0;
my $clockwise = 1;
if ($img ne "0") {
$angle = 90;
$clockwise = 0;
}

# The data for the pie chart
my $data = [25, 18, 15, 12, 8, 30, 35];

# The labels for the pie chart
my $labels = ["Labor", "Licenses", "Taxes", "Legal", "Insurance", "Facilities",
"Production"];

# Create a PieChart object of size 280 x 240 pixels
my $c = new PieChart(280, 240);

# Set the center of the pie at (140, 130) and the radius to 80 pixels
$c->setPieSize(140, 130, 80);

# Add a title to the pie to show the start angle and direction
if ($clockwise) {
$c->addTitle("Start Angle = $angle degreesnDirection = Clockwise");
} else {
$c->addTitle("Start Angle = $angle degreesnDirection = AntiClockwise");
}

# Set the pie start angle and direction
$c->setStartAngle($angle, $clockwise);

# Draw the pie in 3D
$c->set3D();

# Set the pie data and the pie labels
$c->setData($data, $labels);

# Explode the 1st sector (index = 0)
$c->setExplode(0);

# Output the chart
$c->makeChart("anglepie$img.png")
}

createChart(0);
createChart(1);

     Charts and graphs from data? - (crazy) - (16)
         How do you want to assemble them? - (static) - (4)
             Scripted if possible - (crazy)
             rrdt looks cool, but not for me. - (crazy) - (2)
