gnuplot overview

gnuplot is a portable command-line driven interactive datafile (text or binary) and function plotting utility for UNIX, IBM OS/2, MS Windows, DOS, Apple Mac, VMS, Atari and many other platforms. The software is copyrighted but freely distributed (i.e., you don't have to pay for it). It was originally intended as graphical program which would allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data. It does this job pretty well, and in addition it serves as non-interactive plotting engine for miscellaneous portable third-party applications, like Octave. Gnuplot is developed and supported since 1986, and having its scripts and commands easy to understand text files, it is time-portable as well.

Gnuplot supports various kinds of plots. In 2D, it can draw line, point, dot, box, histogram graphs or vector fields. In 3D, it supports line, point and dot surfaces, with or without hidden line removal. It supports color or grayscale surfaces and maps, even for non-equidistant and non-rectangular 3D data, otherwise it offers data gridding.

Gnuplot supports many different types of terminals: interactive screen terminals (with mouse and hotkey functionality), pen plotters (like hpgl), printers (including postscript and many color devices), and printings to output file as vectorial pseudo-devices like LaTeX, metafont, pdf, svg, or bitmap png. Gnuplot is easily extensible to include new devices.

What’s new in version 5.4.5

Updated on Dec 02 2022

New:
  • "set key offset , " tweaks placement of the key
  • Data-driven histogram colors (variable color from extra using column)
Change:
  • Re-order drawing 3D labels to come after pm3d depthorder surfaces
  • Hpgl: add terminal option "fontscale "
  • For nonuniform matrix data, column(0) returns linear position in matrix
  • Set pointintervalbox 0 disables drawing the background box
Fix:
  • Svg: hypertext font handling
  • Track columnheaders of multiple data blocks in a single file
  • Clean up positioning of polar border, raxis, and theta tics
  • Autoscaling of logscaled raxis
  • Memory corruption if a small plot structure is recycled
  • Regression in 5.4.4 - promotion of string to integer should assume that a leading 0 means octal
  • Windows qt: "pause -1" should not block mousing
  • Invalid free of active datablock

Version: 4.4.2
Hello Here is an additional comment to JIMCLARK01's tips to compile gnuplot 4.4.2 under Snow Leopard (Mac OS X.6) with PNG, JPEG output available : X11 should be installed on your computer (From Mac OSX install DVD). gnuplot needs libgd library to support graphics output formats like PNG. You have to install libgd first and to link gnuplot with it. 1 - Download libraries JPEG (jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz), FreeType 2.4.3, and GD 2.0.35 (Find them on the Web, copy the .tar.gz file in a directory , uncompact them with the Finder) Then in a terminal window : 2 - Install lib jpeg-6b : cd jpeg-6b cp /usr/share/libtool/config/config.sub . cp /usr/share/libtool/config/config.guess . ./configure --enable-static --x-include=/usr/include/X11 --x-libraries=/usr/X11/lib make sudo make install sudo ranlib /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a Library will be put be in /usr/local : /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a Remarks : --enable-shared don't work make install produce an error with doc, ignore it. 3 - Install freetype-2.4.3 cd freetype-2.4.3 ./configure make sudo make install 4 - Install libgd cd gd-2.0.35 sudo ln -s /usr/X11R6/include/fontconfig /usr/local/include sudo cp -r /usr/X11/include/*png* /usr/local/include ./configure --with-x --x-include=/usr/include/X11 --x-libraries=/usr/X11/lib --with-png=/usr/X11 make sudo make install 5 - rebuild gnuplot ./configure --with-readline=bsd --x-include=/usr/include/X11 --x-libraries=/usr/X11/lib Verify here that png terminals are detected in configure's output make sudo make install 6 - To make libgd support fonts export GDFONTPATH=$HOME/Library/Fonts:/Library/Fonts:/System/Library/Fonts before you launch gnuplot or put GDFONTPATH initialization in your ~/.bash_profile
