This is a colorful talk! I show some alternatives to GD and GD::Graph: Chart::Clicker, GraphViz and SVG (with Batik as rasterizer).

I held this talk at the German Perlworkshop this year. This will be an improved and expanded version (incorporated all feedback and questions).

It does not require special Perl knowledge, it is more a showcase of CPAN modules and Perl as glue code. I would rate it as Beginner/Intermediate.
