yPlot iconyPlot 1.2.0

yPlot is a yorick interface to PLplot.
yPlot is a yorick interface to PLplot.

yorick is a very fast interpreted matrix language with a C-like syntax. It has the ability to be easily extended to add new commands/functions calling compiled subroutines. Conrad Steenberg wrote such an extension to be able to call the PLplot scientific plotting library. The extension is called "yPlot" and is is easy to use for beginners, as well as being powerful enough for complex usage.

yorick has its own BSD-style licence, but is also freely redistributable. PLplot is now under the LGPL. Please see these packages for more details. yPlot is distributed under the GPL.

What's New in This Release:

■ The principal changes for this version are it has been updated to work with yorick-2.1.05 (the standard yorick version deployed on all modern versions of Debian and Ubuntu), a new CMake-based build system has been deployed, and as a result an ordinary autoloaded yplot extension to yorick is built rather than the special yplot and yplotl executables of the past. Testing shows yPlot-1.2.0 works well with the latest PLplot-5.9.0 that has been released as well as svn versions of PLplot that are precursors to the forthcoming PLplot-5.9.1 release.
