I have millions of data sets, and would like to show much of graphically

can I use perl to create a graphic picture of the data, maybe using colours and moving on a step at a time using the enter key ?

It depends on the data and the graphics you want from it.
Also on what you consider straight forward, and on whether anyone else has already done something similar and produced a module for it.

We have some reporting software around here from a past project that does historical bar / line charts. I will try to dig it up and let you know. We used GD::Graph for it.
