in reply to GD malformed header error

When running a CGI you need to output (print) what the browser shall see. Normally this is HTML-Code, but plain text or images are fine, too.

First of all you need to print a header containing the content-type and two newlines:

print "Content-type: image/png\n\n"

... and remove that line saying: Context: ....

This should work for a trial.

I would further encourage you to use strict;, enable warnings (-w) AND use CGI;.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new; print $q->header("image/png"); ## later print $im->png;

I'm sure, GD is not to blame.
