I'm trying to get Perlmagick to work here. I have used Perl before but don't have much experience fiddling with windows.
This machine is running Windows 2000 professional.
I initially made the mistake of installing the wrong version of activePerl (the AIX version : ActivePerl-188.8.131.527-MSWin32-x86-257965.zip)
This didn't interface with imagemagick at all so I eventually tried deleting the perl directory and installed
Then I installed ImageMagick (ImageMagick-6.2.8-0-Q8-windows-dll.exe) with the Perlmagick option, and IIRC other options as the default.
The advice in another thread ( http://redux.imagemagick.org/discussion ... php?t=6854 ) suggests that this is appropriate.
Perl works, and can write to files. I've tested this.
ImageMagick works, in that it can convert and display the IM logo from a dos prompt.
Perlmagick seems to be detected, but I can't get an image to display. Here is the program I'm trying:
Code: Select all
#!/perl/bin/perl.exe -w $x="test"; print$x; use Image::Magick; $image=Image::Magick->new; $image->Set(size=>'100x100'); $image->ReadImage('xc:white'); $image->Set('pixel[49,49]'=>'red'); $filename = "image.jpg"; open(IMAGE, ">$filename"); $image->Write(file=>\*IMAGE, filename=>$filename); close(IMAGE); undef $image;
What happens is that it runs OK up to the image saving line, then a "Program error" box pops up in windows. This contains a warning sign but no text.
(With the AIX install it didn't get past use Image::Magick;)
I don't know what this means - maybe the program above is at fault. I can't quite believe that the image doesn't have to be reformatted before saving, but can't find any information on that.
Maybe I'm missing libraries for the output code - I've also tried png and gif suffixes.
Perhaps the initial install and deletion of the AIX perl is interfering, what should I do to fix that up? Or perhaps I should have done something else?
So I don't really know where to look now. If only the error message said something to go on.
I am very grateful for your advice on this, as I am eager to get on and use it!
