Making Graphs

`I found’ another tool for making graphs, called rlplot, this uses a spreadsheet like gui interface. If automation isn’t necessary and you don’t need the flexibility this may be a good alternative to gnuplot for one off publication quality graphs. rlplot can export graphs to eps and svg formats.

Data can be imported from csv file and saved as a workbook. Graphs can also be saved.

It’s possible to make all sorts of graphs that aren’t really simple or possible to make with gnuplot. Like the infamous Pi charts.

rlplot is made using qt so I expect it can be available on windows or mac aswell as in linux.
