Math-Image displays some mathematical images using Gtk2-Perl or wxPerl, or writing to a PNG file or the root window. Read more in the (27k, html).

Math-Image sample (about 1 kbyte)

Math-Image shows various paths (see Math-PlanePath) and various sets of numbers (see Math-NumSeq, plus some experimental extras). It's a touch rough, and not blindingly fast, but a fun way to have prime numbers as your root window background, or browse some sprial patterns.

Math-Image is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or higher).

Download version 115 source here or from CPAN, or a Debian package here or from my repo. There's big set of Perl module dependencies, set out in the Makefile.PL in the usual way. Perl 5.8.0 or higher is required (some of the non-Gtk parts might work with less).

math-image-115.tar.gz (278k, and sig)
math-image_115-0.1_all.deb (181k, and sig)

The sig files are Gnu PG ascii armoured signatures generated from my key. There's a SIGNATURE file inside the .tar.gz for cpansign too.

The path code is in Math-PlanePath and see the gallery there for some line and pattern samples.
