Hi Karl. I knew the problem was with the underlying GD module and C library. Just had hopes that you may have come accross this.
I gave up on both cygwin and my first Linux install. Got GD.pm working on a 3rd, however.
Your library is very cool. My Web app simply needs to generate maps for an address so I'd have to do coordinate lookup via something like Geo::Coder::US. My app might have a feature whereby multiple businesses are plotted on a single map, but Google's limited number of labels A-J is a pain. I could also use Yahoo! Maps or some such, but Google Maps are very pretty and linking the map image to the interactive Google version would be nice.
Am I right that zoom level and markers are incompatible? I could not make zoom work w/ 1 marker.
