I´m using maxima on win98se. The commands plot2d and
plot3d are working. But maxima everytime produces a
file maxout.gnuplot and leaves it on my desktop. What
can i do? Besides i´ve got another question: I
installed gnuplot before maxima. Does maxima find my
"old" gnuplot or have i got to use the gnuplot that
comes with maxima ?

    Plotting code now respects *MAXIMA-TEMPDIR* to tell which
    folder to put maxout.gnuplot.

    Dunno about the second question ("Does maxima find my
    old gnuplot or have i got to use the gnuplot that
    comes with maxima ?"). Seems like an installation question
    that others might encounter. Changing name of this item to
    reflect focus on second item.

    Maxima on Windows uses gnuplot packaged with Maxima.
    If you want to try other gnuplot version you have
    to replace wgnuplot.exe in Maxima installation
    directory.
