GNU plotutils contains software for both programmers and technical users.
Its centerpiece is libplot, a powerful C/C++ function library for exporting
2-D vector graphics in many file formats, both vector and raster. It can
also do vector graphics animations. libplot is device-independent in the
sense that its API does not depend on the type of graphics file to be exported.
Besides libplot, the package contains command-line programs for plotting
scientific data. Many of them use libplot to export graphics.
Other ./configure options that you may want to add (provided you install
the required fonts):
--enable-ps-fonts-in-pcl enable use of PS fonts in PCL and HP-GL/2 output
--enable-lj-fonts-in-ps enable use of LaserJet fonts in PS output
--enable-lj-fonts-in-x enable use of LaserJet fonts on X displays
This package can be useful for managing GNU Metafile plots, used by
default in applications such as ng-spice.
