The previous posters gave excellent input. Allow me to expand and enhance. I recently put quite a bit of time into understanding gnuplot. Be warned that the options available to you in a graphics window are different than those that are available when you print to a file. This, and the non-orthogonal arrangement of options, caused my quite a lot of consternation. I eventually decided gnuplot did not suit my data set so I ended up switching back to GD and it's offspring. Now I'm much happier.

I case you wind up going that route, here is a perl script to launch gnuplot and feed it a list of commands. The commands generate a png file.

#!/usr/bin/perl # # # use strict; use warnings; my $output_file = "graphics/plot1"; my $cmd = '| gnuplot - 2>&1'; open PLOT, "$cmd" or die; while (<DATA>) { print PLOT "$_"; } qx("sync"); __DATA__ set terminal png medium color picsize 800 600 set output "graphics/plot1" set title 'Splot of file plot.dat' set style data dots # set hidden3d # set data palette set contour base set zlabel 'amplitude' splot "graphics/plot.dat" matrix with lines show output
