What can pChart do for you?
pChart is a PHP library that will help you to create anti-aliased charts or pictures directly from your web server. You can then display the result in the client browser, sent it by mail or insert it into PDFs. pChart provide object oriented coding syntax and is fully in line with the new web standards allowing you to enhance your web2.0 applications.

pChart require the GD and FreeType PHP extensions to be installed on your web server. This is an important prerequiste that can't be overrided.

This library has now reached an important point in its development cycle going out of the beta step. pChart 2.0 is a completly rewritten library based on what we've learned doing the first version.

pChart is released under two licensing models. If your application is freely distributed and meet the GPL requirements, you can use pChart for free under the the GNU GPLv3 license.

If you want to integrate it in your commercial products, you'll have to get a commercial license. There are some exceptions to this rule for Public Research and Education labs. Non-profit web sites that don't want to publish their source code under GPL may also apply.
