Re: Gtk2::Image Loading a png from scalar

William B Carlson said:
I have a library (GD::Graph, GD::Dashboard, etc) that can create an image
and put it in scalar reference.  It can also make a physical file on the
file system which I can load in with Gtk2::Image->new_from_file("file.png").

What I want to know is if there is a way to take the scalar
( my $image = $dash->png() ) that the library can produce and load that into
the application without having to write the file to the file system and read
it again.

see perldoc Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf there are several new_from_xxx functions one of
which might fit the bill. they're pretty well documented as well. i don't know
that any of them will deal with png formatted data so you may have to feed
them something else, but hopefully that will get you going in the right
