@David Harrison

You are absolutely right, my bad. My dir command shows the same.
-graph export- *should* append the type specific extension IMHO.  My
browser won't display the extensionless png - treats it as a download
then prompts for a handler.  I am adding code to check for the
existence of the file at time of execution and will write a "error,
*.png not found" message.

This is not my experience...

. graph export temp, as(png)
(file temp written in PNG format)

. dir temp*
   9.7k   5/19/06 17:14  temp

. graph export temp.png
(file temp.png written in PNG format)

. dir temp*
   9.7k   5/19/06 17:14  temp
   9.7k   5/19/06 17:17  temp.png

Not all platforms require extensions, remember... Although I am using
windows, which as a rule does.

2) You said: "True, but the file produced does not have an extension, so
adding one in the <img> tag will not help."

Actually, the .png extension is added to the file regardless of what the
confirmation message said - try it yourself, you'll see.
Personally, I think this is a deficiency in the graph export command i
it should state the filename and extension.
