Build your realtime charts and graphs with 'qgif'.

If you know cgi you can use this to create 'gifs' on the fly. If not, you can still blast out thousands of charts/graphs/hour on a regular NT machine.
In conjuntion with a data processing helper (like qdata) you can produce complex overlay graphs culled from many data sources.

example syntax

qgif /bar /joint=2 /date=%b /grid /size=600,400 /border=sea:2 /in=test.csv /out=test.gif

  • inputs a file in tabbed-text format
  • dates are formatted as "month only"
  • outputs a bar chart as a 600x400 gif
  • the border is 'sea' colored, and is embedded in the image

qgif /line /xmark /col=tab /size=300,200 /joint=4 /thick=3 /in=test.csv /out=test.gif /size=300,200 /in=c:\test2.csv /out=c:\inch\web\code\test2.gif

  • outputs a line chart with only xmarks (no grid) as a 300x200 gif
  • input is from a tabbed-text file
  • lines are 3 pixels wide
  • joints are a 4 pixels radius
  • font is set to 'tiny'
  • the border is supplied by your browser

qgif /pie /col=pipe /size=320,180 /in=c:\test3.csv /out=c:\test3.gif

  • inputs a file in pipe-escaped format
  • outputs a pie chart as a 320x180 gif
