gnuplot for Debian ================== Documentation ------------- The full documentation including all examples, the info-pages and a tutorial has been split off to a separate gnuplot-doc package. You can also find useful information on the following websites: - the original FAQ: http://gnuplot.sourceforge.net/faq/faq.html - not so Frequently Asked Questions: http://t16web.lanl.gov/Kawano/gnuplot/index-e.html - Tutorial (in german) http://www.we.fh-osnabrueck.de/fbwe/vorlesung/edv2/gplot/gplot.html - collection of websites with gnuplot-help/more tutorials http://gnuplot.sourceforge.net/help.html SVGAlib ------- I've dropped the svgalib-support for the following reasons: a) the SUID-bit has to be set which is a security risk b) the dependency on both svgalib and svgalib-dummy has to be crudely hacked into the package c) all these tricks only have to be done to support graphics no one uses on only one architecture :-( d) even upstream decided to disable svgalib by default libreadline ----------- Yes, the built in readline of gnuplot is bad. However, libreadline cannot be used instead because it is licensed under the GPL, whereas gnuplot has special licenses (patches only). Distribution of those programs linked together is legally impossible but you may rebuild your own custom package with readline. Please don't file bugs telling me to use libreadline in gnuplot... Interfaces to other languages ----------------------------- If you want to send gnuplot commands from inside your program, the following packages may help you (Beware: I haven't tested them!): Available as Debian package: python-gnuplot Not available as Debian package: interface to ANSI C: http://ndevilla.free.fr/gnuplot/ Feel free to send me more information to be included in this place! -- Cyril Bouthors <email@example.com>, Fri, 31 Mar 2006 18:48:52 +0200
