OK, Andre has done a wonderful job (as always), and you (probably) all know that I'm
a big fan of Rev cgi (building websites around it every time I can)...
Nevertheless, I don't want to be the devil's advocate, but I was wondering what practical
use we could find in generating images via cgi standalones, like bar charts etc.
I mean, there are already several (fast) php librairies capable of it, that can be hooked to any
Rev cgi script... And there are also some js functions that allow generation of various
graphics on the client side browser...
Last but not least, as for image manipulation, we all know the slowness of imagedata...
So I'm curious : any brilliant idea ?
