Ctioga 1.10

A powerful command-line plotting system, to rapidly make publication quality graphes.
Ctioga is a powerful command-line plotting system, to rapidly make publication quality graphs. Ctioga is based on the wonderful work by Bill Paxton, Tioga.

Ctioga has been designed with ease of use and extensibility in mind. It is based on the powerful Tioga plotting library.


First, unpack both the archives you did download. A mere:

tar xvzf file.tar.gz

on both files should do it.

There are two ways to do the actual installation. With administrator privileges. If you have administrator privileges on your computer, you can try the following:

cd tioga-1.1.7
cd ..
cd ctioga-0.5
sudo ./INSTALL

where you need to replace the dots by the actual name of the directory extracted. Unprivileged user. Without privileges, you might want to try this:

cd tioga-1.1.7
cd ..
cd ctioga-0.5

However, in this case, as the installation scripts should remind you, you should set the RUBYLIB environment variable appropriately. For instance, if your login shell is bash (the standard on most of Linux distributions), add the following lines to the file .bashrc found on your home directory:

export RUBYLIB

What's New in version 1.9
  • This version brings much better control over the look of the legend, including a much simpler scheme for positioning, frames, background color and transparency, legend lines unrelated to plots, and control over the height of the lines.
  • In addition, the text data-gathering backend was improved to be able to split text files into subsets at blank lines (a bit like in gnuplot).
  • There are many more small feature enhancements and small bugfixes.
