Building the examples
The pChart binaries are shipped with some examples that will allow you to quickly create your first charts. All the examples are stored in the "examples" folder. You can use this example files to learn how pChart can be deeply customized for a better eye-looking integration in any web framework. There is at least three way to render the inbuild examples :
From a web server, going in the examples folder.
From a windows computer by double clicking on the buildAll.cmd batch file.
From the command line, using the PHP interpreter CLI interface.
From a web server
You can render the examples directly using your web server. To do so, expend the pChart archive under your web server document root and navigate to the /examples/ folder. A simple web page should appears :
Just click on an example and it will be rendered. You‘ll also see the code that was used to generate the picture.
Using the BuildAll batch file
If you‘re running windows, assuming the PHP binaries are in the system PATH environment variable, you‘ll just have to run the buildAll.cmd batch file to quickly render all the examples in the /pictures sub folder.
If the /pictures folder is empty after running the script, you may review the log file named errors.log located in the /resources folder.
Linux operating system & manual scripts calls
If you‘re running linux or want to execute each samples one by one from the command line, just invoke the php interpreter this way :
php -q examplename.phpYou can find the scripts results in the /pictures folder.
You may also want to play with the sandox system. See the description here.
