Re: [MacPerl] Image generation

Yes, MacPerl includes the GD module, which can be used to draw gif images.
In your case, the following script should work:


use GD;

$input = "0001010111110101100111111";

# create a new image
$im = new GD::Image(5,5);

# allocate some colors
$white = $im->colorAllocate(255,255,255);
$black = $im->colorAllocate(0,0,0);

# make the background transparent and interlaced

foreach $i (0..5) {
foreach $j (0..5) {
if (substr($input, ($i*5+$j), 1) eq "1") {

# Convert the image to GIF and print it on standard output
print "Content-type: image/gif\n\n";
print $im->gif;
