rlplot(1) generate publication quality graphs


rlplot <file>
exprlp [options]<input>[options][<output>]


This manual page documents briefly the rlplot and exprlp commands.

rlplot is a GUI based program for displaying scientific data in standard formats. Output is generated on the X display where further changes can be made to the graph using point and click methods. Images can be exported as scalable vector graphics (SVG) as well as EPS, WMF and TIFF formats.

exprlp reads RLPlot files and exports various vector based graphic file formats including scalable vector graphics (SVG), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), and Windows Metafile (WMF).


rlplot does not have any command line options but the following options are available for exprlp
use stdin/stdout as input or output file; requires that file format is set by -e | -s | -w option
delete input file after read
output Encapsulated PostScript, *.eps
output Scalable Vector Graphics, *.svg
like -s, start output with "Content-Type: image/svg+xml"
print RLPlot version
output Windows Meta File, *.wmf
quiet mode: suppress output to the console


exprlp foo.rlp foo.svg ;exports Scalable Vector Graphics
-q foo.rlp foo.eps ;exports Encapsulated PostScript, no messages
foo.rlp foo.wmf ;exports Windows Meta File
-sq foo.rlp - ;exports SVG to the console, no messages
exprlp -eq - - ;converts inputfile from stdin to EPS on stdout
switch character is either '-' or '//'
