In Listing 1 of the article, “Creating Web Plots on Demand” by Mark Pruett (Linux Journal August 1998), the following two lines of code contain an error (i.e. the space between 2 >):

system ("$GNUPLOT $gpfile | $PPMTOGIF 2 >
  /dev/null > " ."$httproot/$imagedir/$giffile");

These 2 lines should actually be:

system ("$GNUPLOT $gpfile | $PPMTOGIF "
  ." 2> /dev/null > "
