Or, if you're willing to bring in the "big guns", R can do radar plots, and you can call R from Perl.
The following example creates "chart.png" as a radar-plot.
It requires R, the "fmsb" R library and the Statistics::R perl module.
my $output_file = "chart.png";
## Contrived example of passing Perl values to the R script
my @total_values = ( 2.2, 3.3, 4.1 );
my @phys_values = ( 1, 7, 14 ) ;
my @psycho_values = ( 2,2,2.8 );
# Radarchart example loosely based on
# Prepare Min/Max values
maxmin = data.frame(
# assume "total_values","phys_values","psycho_values"
# are existing R vector variables (will be created by Perl before running this script)
dat = data.frame(
total = total_values,
phys = phys_values,
psycho= psycho_values );
dat = rbind(maxmin,dat)
radarchart(dat,axistype=1,seg=3,plty=1,title="Perl/R RadarChart Example")
# Create the R object
my $R = Statistics::R->new( shared => 1 );
# Create R vector variables with the data values
# Run the script
