Example

Here is a simple perl example that loads a mapfile, creates an image and saves it:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use mapscript;
#
# Include XBase for access to XBase/DBF files.
use XBase;
#
# Include DBI so XBase files can be queried in an SQL manner.
use DBI;
#
# Start the map.
my $map = new mapscript::mapObj('boundary.map') or die('Unable to open mapfile.');
#
# Render the map.
my $img = $map->draw() or die('Unable to draw map');
#
# Save the rendered image.
my $void = $img->save('example.png');
