Visual comparison of plot files from http://josoansi.de/octave_plot_compare/compare_plot_demos_01.html until compare_plot_demos_09.html

You can find the scripts which are used to create these plots in scripts/testfun/private.

ProblemsEdit

  • ML2019 can't process the generated script and shows "The input was too complicated or too big for MATLAB to parse.". A workaround is to split the script into two parts, replicate the preface (approx. the first 80 lines, adapt the diary log and duplicate the "Helper functions" part at the end of the script (this wasn't done in this run)

Attention: The info below is from 2016 and is *outdated*Edit

QtEdit

gnuplot 4.6Edit

There are a lot of gnuplot differences and it might be nice to fix those, but someone would have to take an interest. Octave is moving towards OpenGL for all plotting so most developers focuses on bug fixes for that toolkit.

Qt and gnuplot (independent of the used graphics_toolkit)Edit

Matlab errors due to incompatibilitiesEdit

won't fix or Octave only featureEdit

  • matlab comet3_01, comet.png: Only the beginning of the animation is printed. Matlab implements comet in a completely different way which means printing isn't really possible for them.
  • matlab polar_03, polar_05: Modifying ticks for rho (rticks) and theta (tticks) is an Octave addition.
  • matlab polar_04: Modifying color and text properties in polar plot is an Octave addition.
  • Multiple Matlab plots with "Error in color/linetype argument". This is because adding legend keys with ";" in plot like "plot(1:10, "; a ramp;)" is an Octave only addition.
