Here is an example that creates a table with rows for each x between two randomly selected values. Perhaps that will be sufficient for you to modify it for your needs:
loadMacros(
"MathObjects.pl",
"PGML.pl",
"niceTables.pl"
);

$x1 = random(-5,5,1);$x2 = random($x1+1,$x1+5,1);

$f = Formula("x/2+1"); # # The first row of the table is headers for the columns # (formatted using LaTeX) # @xy = ([['$$x$$', header=>'CH'], ['$$y$$', header=>'CH']]); # # Add the rows to the table. The values are put between # $$and$$ so they will be formatted as mathematics # for$x ($x1..$x2) {
push(@xy, ['$$'.x.'$$', '$$'.f->eval(x => x).'$$']);
}

#
#  Create the table using DataTable().  The three stars are
#     so that the LaTeX will be formatted after being inserted.
#
BEGIN_PGML
[@ DataTable( [ @xy ], align => "|c|c|", midrules=>1) @]***
END_PGML

Hope that gets you where you need to go.
