      You can use the GD module for this. If you really want to get fancy, you
      could use the Image::Magick module along with the ImageMagick program.

      GD should be in your Perl distribution. You can get the latest (now uses
      PNG instead of GIF) as well as the Image::Magick module from CPAN
      (http://www.cpan.org). Should be a link there to the ImageMagick site.

      That seems a little overkill...make 26 gifs called a.gif, b.gif, etc. ... $name = greg ; @letters = split(//, $name); foreach $letter (@letters) { $filename =
