What is gnuplot?
The gnuplot is a software program used to create three-dimensional plots of data, data fits and functions. Since its conception in 1986, this software has been used by scientists and students for its publication-quality graphics and to visualize data such as mathematical equation and functions interactively, however, the gnuplot has developed to support also non-interactive uses.
This software can produce output in many formats of graphic files, these include the EPS or Encapsulated PostScript, the SVG or Scalable Vector Graphics, JPEG and the PNG or Portable Network Graphics or directly on the screen. The gnuplot is also able to produce LaTex codes and its fonts and notation abilities can also be used. This software is also used by the programs Maxima and gretl as its plotting engine. It may be used in many languages including Java, Ruby, Perl, Python, C, and Smalltalk
The gnuplot is compatible on all major operating systems from Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Unix and GNU/Linux among others, but despite its name the gnuplot is not carried by the GNU General Public License, rather it has its own open source license.
