Hi,

Just want to let the list know that I've uploaded a new perl module to CPAN
for the server-side generation of SVG images. The module has just gone
through a period of peer review and is now ready for use.

Some samples of the output are available at:
http://test.hackmare.com/svg/index2.html an html page with
dynamically-generated, embedded SVG content.
http://test.hackmare.com/svg/lnes.html a scientific graphing server
http://test.hackmare.com/cgi-bin/new_svg/examples/svgtest2.pl a random
generation of drawing objects

SVG.pm HOME PAGES
http://test.hackmare.com
http://roasp.com

CURRENT VERSION
The module is version 0.2 and supports all but the following tags (although
the fe* tags are partly supported).

Version 0.2 does not support the image tag yet, but support for it is coming
out in version 0.25 shortly.

TESTED PLATFORMS

The module has been tested using the following configurations:
solaris 2.6 (perl 5.04)
windows 32 (ME) (perl 5.6.1)
SuSE 7.0, 7.2 with and without mod_perl (perl 5.6.0)
RH 6.1 with and without mod_perl (perl 5.05)

No problems with any of these implementations have been found.

UPLOAD FTP SITE

You will find the latest distribution on CPAN (
http://search.cpan.org/search?dist=SVG ).
Install it from CPAN by running perl -MCPAN -e"install SVG" from any *nix
system.

Alternatively, you can get it from the following ftp servers:
ftp://test.hackmare.com/pub/Current/
ftp://roasp.com/pub/Current/

Refer to the README file for installation instructions.

The documentation for the module is still fairly poor, but the distribution
comes with a set of working example of a command-line and cgi scripts.

Version 0.25 is coming out this weekend and supports all but:

not-yet implemented elements:
