in reply to GD vs. gnuplot

I've used gnuplot to produce very nice PS/PDF vector based plots suitable for inclusion in printed papers.

GD png/gif bitmap plots just don't look as nice printed. (I suppose you could scale them really, really big...)

SVG is also vector based, so should make nicer printed plots.
