What happens if you do each 2Dplot as a 3D plot wiht z=0 (That is what
matlab does. ;-)) and rotate the plot that z-axis comes out of the
Does gnuplot put some ugly labelling on it?

I am working on some optimization stuff. Maybe I get something someday
in a way that it can be used by others. Currently I am on a tight 
time budget (probably like most others) but if I have something useful
I will post it.

Well I didn't complain (that wouldn't be ok). I only asked for a way to
do it. 

Is there a sort of bank account I could put some money on ($50,-) for
