AquaTerm allows you to plot things in OS X without using an X client, such as X11. This has two advantages:
 +
*It requires less memory and hard drive space, if you don't have X installed or running already.
 +
*The graphs look better, and can be saved as Quartz PDFs.
 +

==Installation==
 +
Aquaterm is included in gnuplot in the extras folder of the Octave install image, and if you install it separately there might be issues.
 +
 
 +
However, if you must install it separately, Aquaterm can be obtained as .dmg from the following URL:
 +
http://aquaterm.sourceforge.net/
 +
 
 +
As always, drag and drop it into your applications folder. If you installed Octave as a .dmg, plots will work with X11 automatically unless you change your environmental variables. For most users, adding
 +
export GNUTERM='aqua'
 +
in <code>~/.profile</code> will solve the problem.
 +
 
 +
Open a new terminal to refresh your environmental variables. Plotting with Octave (and/or Gnuplot) should display in Aquaterm now.
