Comparing ctioga2 and gnuplot

When it comes to command-line plotting utilities, there is little doubt that gnuplot is the most used plotting program.

I believe, however, that ctioga2 does a much better job in most of the cases. In this page, you will find a “mirror” of gnuplot’s demo gallery.

This demo gallery serves several purposes:

  • I hope this will convince you to switch to ctioga2
  • this also serves as a pendant to the tutorial
  • it also serves as a kind of todo-list

This page follows more-or-less the layout of the original demo pages.

The look of ctioga2 graphs is as close as possible to the original gnuplot plots, but in some cases, a much better ctioga2 example is given, to give you a feel of what is easy and nice to do in ctioga2.
