What was cobbled together before is now running pretty smoothly thanks to a
new CMake-based build system for yplot that I put together today and
commited to the svn trunk of yplot. If you want to give this version of
yplot a try, then (1) make sure the yplot_svn directory does not exist, (2)
svn checkout https://yplot.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/yplot/trunk yplot_svn
to create yplot_svn and fill it with the new yplot source tree, and (3)
follow the rest of the instructions in yplot_svn/INSTALL.
The new build system builds the svn trunk version of yplot without problems
on my Debian testing platform thanks to a build-system option which works
around the Debian yorick-dev bug
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=490597) that I mentioned
before. (See the above INSTALL file for more details about this option.)
The resulting yplot executable seems to work well for my research plots with
no changes required in my legacy Yorick *.i include files to control the
plotting with yplot.
Your feedback on this svn trunk version of yplot would be welcome.
