GNU Plotutils - A library for exporting 2-D vector graphics in many file formats.

The GNU plotutils package contains software for both programmers and technically oriented users. Its centerpiece is the libplot/libplotter, a C/C++ function lib for exporting 2-D vector graphics in many file formats (including WebCGM format, recommended by the graphics Activity of the W3 Consortium). It can also do vector graphics animations, has thread-safe APIs, and supports the use of Posix threads (if available). The program also contains the following command-line programs for plotting scientific data:
  • graph- plots 2-D datasets or data streams in real time
  • plot- translates metafile formats to any of the other formats
  • tek2plot- translates legacy Tektronix data to any of the above formats
  • pic2plot- translates the pic language to any of the other formats
  • plotfont- displays character maps of the fonts available in the above formats.
  • spline- spline interpolation of data
  • ode- numerically integrates ordinary differential equations
