On this disk is the OS X binary for Gnuplot. The Gnuplot package includes and relies on Aquaterm for displaying plots using [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_(graphics_layer) Apple's Quartz graphics layer]. Alternatively, X11 can be used. If your entire data set is easily visible and you do not need to zoom in, you may prefer the pleasant anti-aliasing features of Quartz and Aquaterm.  On the other hand, if your data set is too large or complicated to be easily visible, you may prefer to use X11, which allows you to zoom in and out of regions, set crosshairs at points, and other more advanced features.  Aquaterm is the default, but you can change the default to X11 by creating a file called .bash_profile in your home directory (note the period at the beginning of the file name) and adding the line "export GNUTERM=x11" (without the quotes).

Move the 'gnuplot' icon to your Applications folder. For purpose of this discussion - this is assumed to be /Applications.  If you are using a local Applications folder (/~/Applications) appropriate modification of the paths specified below will be necessary.

This Gnuplot application includes Aquaterm.  It is located at /Applications/gnuplot.app/Contents/Resources/lib/Aquaterm.app  If you need it for some other application, this is the path that will find it.  But don't move it to the upper level of the Applications folder, or else Gnuplot will not know where to find it.
