Hi all,

I'm using octave from cvs. What is the advised way to plot to a file? In "the old days", this was connecting to gnuplot with gset term png gset output "file.png" etc... When I use gset now, I get a warning that it will be deprecated in Octave 3.0... What should I use to guarantee compatibility?


Could you provide an example, please? From "help print" it is not clear to me how I can tell octave what figure to print... One extra point: I'm running on a cluster node that doesn't forward X, so my job runs in batch and should, at the end, produce a plot in a file....

in this case case, if you want no-X than you should probably use gnuplot directly, maybe using the approach that john uses -- use octave to do the calculations ans output the results to a file, and then use gnuplot to produce graphs from the files. gnuplot can produce files in a variety of formats without any X necessary
