Plot2 is a scientific 2D plotting program designed for everyday plotting. Plot2 is easy to use, creates high quality plots, and allows easy and powerful manipulations and calculations of data. Basically Plot2 allows working with multiple documents where every document consists of one or more XY data sets (called buffer in Plot2).
There is also the possibility to add subviews (plots inside plots) to your document. A subview is completely independent with its own data buffers, graphic attributes, etc. Data can be imported from text or binary files, directly from a MySQL database, with a Perl based import filter or from EPICS. It is also possible to import data by using copy&paste or drag&drop from other programs.
Plot2 supports many plotting styles like lines, symbols, grids, bars, filled areas, sticks, dots, histograms, error bars, automatic legend, text and graphic objects, etc. It can import images from other programs with copy&paste or drag&drop.
Plot2 has many data manipulation methods integrated: smooth, spline interpolation, differentiation, integration, normalizing, moving, data calculations, function generator, etc.
Plot2 has also a built in macro language for automating complex tasks.
