Print an array of numbers as a bar chart

Print an array of numbers as a bar chart

Is there a way to print an array of numbers as a bar chart or pie chart? A standard RPG program produces individual one page reports that are distributed by fax/e-mail or snail-mail. We would like change an array of monthly totals to a bar chart.
Assuming that you are just using standard tools, probably the simplest way would be to output your array to a file, download your file to an Excel spreadsheet and then have Excel display your graph.
