Gnuplot is a portable command-line driven data and function plotting utility.  It was originally intended to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data.  

Gnuplot supports many types of plots in two or three dimensions.  It can draw using points, lines, boxes, contours, vector fields surfaces and various associated text.  It also supports various specialized plot types.  

Gnuplot supports many different types of output:  interactive screen display (with mouse and hotkey functionality), pen plotters (like hpgl), printers (including postscript and many color devices), and file formats as vectorial pseudo-devices like LaTeX, metafont, pdf, svg, or bitmap png.
