In Octave the first choice to make is the {{Codeline|graphics_toolkit()}}. Standard is the 'gnuplot' toolkit using the [http://www.gnuplot.info Gnuplot] software package . The second choice is 'fltk' [http://www.fltk.org fltk]. You might want to try to test both of them for your plotting aims to see which solves your problem. |

− | + | After the choice of the {{Codeline|graphics_toolkit('gnuplot')}} or {{Codeline|graphics_toolkit('fltk')}}, there is the following hierarchy to address when make/adapting your plot: | |

− | + | - root (any hierarchy needs to start somewhere) | |

− | + | - gcf() (the handle to your figure: one for every figure) | |

− | + | - gca() (the handle to the axes inside a figure (several if you have subplots) | |

− | + | - p=plot(x,y) (p is the handle to the data, data symbols, data line thickness, etc) | |

− | |||

− | + | Let's do an example: | |

− | |||

− | |||

− | |||

− | |||

− | |||

− | |||

+ | graphics_toolkit('gnuplot'); | ||

+ | x=0:0.1:3; | ||

+ | y=sin(x); | ||

+ | p=plot(x,y,'b'); | ||

This should get you a plot of a part of a sine wave. Octave has used all standard properties like line widths, fonts, etc, except for the line color which was forced to be blue (via the {{Codeline|'b'}}). | This should get you a plot of a part of a sine wave.
