Use the various canvas widgets...Tk, Gtk2, Zinc, etc. For something complex, using the excellent gnuplot as the engine, see SuperFormula with gnuplot and Tk. For simple straight forward plotting, see Tk Realtime data aquisition or look at the Tk "widget" demo for the canvas 2-d plot.

You will find however, that pixel plotting (single pixels) is VERY intensive, so you really want to use some sort of lines( actually curves, a line is just a straight curve :-))

You also might like to look at Tk Patio/Office layout designer for circles, polygons, etc. that are draggable.

Here is a sample of styles.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; my $mw = tkinit; $mw->geometry("600x440+100+100"); my $canvas = $mw->Canvas(-width => 600, -height => 400, -bg => 'black')->pack(); my $line; $line = $canvas->createLine(0,200,100,200,400,200,600,200, -width => 5, -smooth => 1, -splinesteps => 20, -fill => 'purple'); my $timer = $canvas->repeat(10,sub{ $canvas->delete($line); my @vals = ( 0, 200, 200, 200 + rand 300, 400, 200 - rand 300, 600, 2 +00); $line = $canvas->createLine( @vals, -width => 5, -smooth => 1, -splinesteps => 20, -fill => 'purple'); }); $mw->Button(-text=>'Quit',-command =>sub{exit})->pack; MainLoop;

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth Remember How Lucky You Are

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
