Dear Developers,

I am a big fan of your work and I really hope that you guys will keep up the good work. I think we are very close in reaching the point where gdl will become equivalent to idl. I have today made some publication quality plots with gdl. However, the contour function lacks much. Specially without the cell_fill you can not correctly draw the projected data. Moreover, triangulate function is also missing making it impossible to draw irregular grids. Anyhow I will be obliged if you consider adding these two keywords are added to contour plot routine. Not that important but /closed would also be a good addition if possible.

There are also some small stuff missing in the device. For example, isolatin1 is not supported, font_size is not supported.

Thanking in advance for your help and time.

Regards,

Nauman

    contour,/irregular has been added recently in the cvs. Please test.
    Please provide simple and complete examples where /cell_fill makes a difference over /fill since behaviour is not clear from documentation.
    Actually we implemented only what was possible with plplot, so perhaps most of these requests should better be asked to plplot maintainers, whose library is used by gdl to make contour plots.
