Yorick is a high-level scientific programming language that is easy to
learn, and yplot is a Yorick extension that gives Yorick users access to
the PLplot library for their plotting needs.
The principal changes for the yplot-1.2.0 release are it has been updated to
work with yorick-2.1.05 (the standard yorick version deployed, for example,
on all modern versions of Debian and Ubuntu), a new CMake-based build system
has been deployed, and as a result an ordinary autoloaded yplot extension to
yorick is built rather than the special yplot and yplotl executables of the
past. Testing shows yPlot-1.2.0 works well with the latest PLplot-5.9.0 that
has been released as well as svn versions of PLplot that are precursors to
the forthcoming PLplot-5.9.1 release.
Access this new version of yplot at
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=15416 and build,
install, and test it following the instructions in the INSTALL file.
