Re: How to know when gnuplot is finished

It is actually easier to let gnuplot do more of the work. The next two lines
tell it to use postscript, and to send the result directly to the printer

        gset terminal postscript
        gset output "|lpr"

In fact, what I use is a simple function 'replotps.m' which has the two lines
above plus the lines

        gset terminal x11
        gset output

That way, I can interactively work on a graph. Once I like it, this function
redirects the output to the printer, replots the graphs and resets the
defaults of X11 graphics.

Hope that helps, Dirk
