Okay, my post was not very good.

The reason (I think) I need GNUplot, is that I would like to include the plots from R in a Latex report, where I would like to have all the text and equations in the plots with the same font as used in Latex.

So when I read about opening and closing "dev" for making a pdf I figured that the plots that R produces are like the once Matlab makes; shows what they ought to, nothing more, nothing less.

So I was wondering if anyone know of an GNUplot friendly format and the code that would produce that text file.

I am new to both R and GNUplot, so I am pure ears if someone knows how to make such plots in R. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code. Received on Fri 29 Feb 2008 - 22:15:56 GMT
