Projects / yplot


yplot is an interface to the PLPlot plotting library written as an extension of yorick. This combination allows one to quickly and easily create high-quality scientific plots from data, even in large structured files. yplot implements 2D line and scatter plots, contour plots, 3D surface, mesh and scatter and line plots. The user is given full control over every aspect of the plot, including symbol types, line types, label placement, fonts, etc. The results can therefore be made suitable for high-quality scientific presentation. A 60 page Postscript tutorial is included with examples and a reference section.

    Release Notes: This release has been upgraded to use the recently released PLplot-5.0.4, which is a huge step up in documentation, bugfixes, and features from the PLplot-4.99 snapshot that yPlot was based on before. Thus, there are substantial bugfixes and new features in this version of yPlot. For example, this release includes new yPlot example scripts that can be used to mimic the results of virtually all the PLplot-5.0.4 examples, including shade plots and 3D shaded-surface plots.
