Interfaces to gnuplot for those programmers, who are not satisfied with their own
- C++ iostream interface by Dan Stahlke.
"This interface allows gnuplot to be controlled from C++ and is designed to be the lowest hanging fruit. In other words, if you know how gnuplot works it should only take 30 seconds to learn this library."

Programming interfaces – bidirectional interaction
Here are demo programs demonstrating how to read and interact with gnuplot's mouse position
at a clicked
point from various languages (aka bidirectional communication between your program and
Software that uses gnuplot
a high-level language for numerical computations. Mostly compatible with Matlab.
Useful additions (scripts):
- Reading gnuplot hotkeys: see the section on bi-directional communication above.
- imagegp.m (version 2006-04-10):
a replacement for the default
image.m, imagesc.m, and imshow.m,
which are fast and support true axes. Requires gnuplot development version 4.1
(uses the plot ... with image plotting style).
- loadgpbin.m and_savegpbin.m: load and save gnuplot
binary matrix files (those from help binary matrix and
splot 'x.gpbin' binary).
a program for symbolic computation. Here are some
of gnuplot output.
a program to generate assembler code needed to approximate a data set using simple functions.
is a small and portable statistics program, simple to use and can be run in scripts.
Xldlas – basic
statistical package for X windows with graphing, regression analysis, curve
fitting using genetic algorithms, and some other useful stuff.
GNUPLTXY is an interface from
GAMS (Generalized Algebraic Modelling System)
(Gnu Regression, Econometrics and Time-series Library) is a cross-platform software
package for econometric analysis.
Web software generating plots by gnuplot
PlotWS provides a graph generation WebService. It is implemented as a
wrapper around gnuplot and exposes a subset of gnuplot's
functionality. The Web Service layer is implemented using Apache AXIS.
- gnuplot wiki
can interpret embedded gnuplot commands in a <gnuplot> ... </gnuplot>
section in html code.
- ITSC's gnuplot Web Service:
provides a wrapper allowing for distributed access (via HTTP) to the
gnuplot functionality without having to install and maintain the software on
your local machine. Provide the gnuplot service a URL to your data file,
specify the necessary parameters and it will return the specified plot in a
variety of image formats.
