I'm sorry that you haven't been able to get PLplot installed. I have
two further comments, one for you if you want to keep listening in on
this thread if it continues, and one for the list:
I'm no expert on installation issues but I've managed to write a bash
script that gets the job done (with an exception-- see below) on
Macs. I'd be glad to share it with you or post it to the list so that
it can get a bit of vetting.
In the script, the value that I use for CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH is this:
There's really no way to know this without asking around--this is
kind of obscure stuff. The first path is to the GNAT library. The
other two paths are to Apple's pre-installed numerical libraries,
BLAS and LAPACK, which are necessary if you want to use the new
vector-matrix capabilities of Ada 2005--otherwise, you can leave them
FWIW, yesterday I tried to install PLplot from MacPorts and it failed
with an obscure MacPorts-related error. I've joined the MacPorts list
to see what's going on. I think you mentioned that the MacPorts
installer never finished--FWIW, some of these installations can take
Finally (for the list), I have never succeeded in getting Ada to use
Aquaterm to output PLplot stuff--the build always fails when I enable
both Ada and Aquaterm. This is an issue that I have set aside to deal
with other things. Some time back, Hazen Babcock suggested adding
these lines to my bash installation file but I have not tried them:
