gnuplot

gnuplot

gnuplot is a command-driven interactive function plotting program. It can be used to plot functions and data points in both two- and three-dimensional plots in many different formats. It is designed primarily for the visual display of scientific data.

It is software for making 2D and 3D graphs from data and functions. gnuplot supports lots of output formats, including drivers for many printers, (La)TeX, (x)fig, Postscript, and much more.

gnuplot can produce output directly on screen, or in many formats of graphics files, including PNG, EPS, SVG, JPEG and many others. It is also capable of producing LaTeX code that can be included directly in LaTeX documents, making use of LaTeX's fonts and powerful formulae abilities. The program can be used both interactively and in batch mode using scripts.

Its data files and self-defined functions can be manipulated by internal C-like language. It can also perform smoothing, spline-fitting, or nonlinear fits, as well as working with complex numbers.

gnuplot is used as the plotting engine of GNU Octave, Maxima and gretl, and it can be used from various scripting languages, including Perl, Python, Ruby and Smalltalk.
