Perl Graphics Programming by Shawn P. Wallace
Book DescriptionGeared toward Perl users and webmasters, "Perl Graphics Programming focuses on open-source scripting programs that manipulate graphics files for use on the Web. The book demystifies the manipulation of graphics formats for newcomers to the Web with a practical, resource-like approach. With this book you'll learn to: generate dynamic Web graphics with charts, tables, and buttons; automate graphics tasks (thumbnails and borders); create dynamics Web documents (PDF, Postscript); and produce rich Internet experiences with Flash and SVG. You'll begin with a tour of the most common web graphic file formats--PNG, JPEG, GIF, SWF, SVG, Postscript and PDF then you'll explore the most powerful tools and Perl modules available for manipulating these graphics, such as GD, PerlMagick, and GIMP. Included in this part of the book is a thorough description of the Ming module for creating on-the-fly Flash files. Next, a "cookbook" section includes practical, all purpose recipes: GIF animation, generating images within a dynamic application, communicating between SWF front-end and Perl back-end, XSLT transformations, compression, and more.
