I would like to take a plot from maxima and insert it into a LaTeX file.
I found a command plot2d_ps that might be useful, but the documentation says
it puts postscript into a stream "pstream". But how do I specify the name
of pstream? Backing up in the documentation I see the there is a plot2d
example with "sin.eps". But it neglects to say that closeps() is needed. It
also seems that plot2d_ps is quite unnecessary, and is equivalent to
inserting the option [gnuplot_term,ps].
I gather that one also needs to do, and that plot2d_ps doesn't do this; one
For setting a plot option, I did not spot a place where this exact syntax is
It seems that
plot_options[gnuplot_out_file]: "c:\\foo.eps" ;
Would be simpler, to explain, though perhaps trickier to implement without
re-doing the interface somewhat.
PS, I eventually got it to work.
