Part 3. Advanced Gnuplot
In this part, we look at several more complicated topics in detail. First we discuss several more sophisticated plotting techniques that we have not encountered before; then we talk about ways to configure gnuplot’s terminals and use its scripting capabilities.
Chapter 8 introduces three-dimensional plots.
Chapter 9 is about color plots and also discusses different ways color can be used to convey information in a graph.
Chapter 10 discusses some special techniques, such as graphs containing several subplots, or polar and parametric plots. I also introduce gnuplot’s curve-fitting capabilities.
Chapter 11 describes in detail how to export graphs from gnuplot to file, using gnuplot’s terminal capabilities.
