Hi all,

I have a question about usefullness of the Gnuplot port on the Ben.

I have found that Gnuplot does not support output to the Linux
framebuffer. 
One can save plots to JPG, SVG or PostScript file. But for an interactive
use it is only possible to use a textual output (see below for example).

Can be this usefull for someone?

Best regards,
Jiri Brozovsky


P.S. Example of gnuplot use on my Ben:

gnuplot> set term dumb 40 15
gnuplot> plot sin(x)
