I've been trying to setup plplot examples and was originally getting an error saying it could not open or find the font files, this was solved by setting up the PLPLOT_HOME environment variable correctly.
Now I'm getting another error when running the first example, stating:
< 1> ps PostScript File (monochrome)
< 2> psc PostScript File (color)
< 3> jpeg JPEG File
< 4> null Null device
< 5> gif GIF File
< 6> svg Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG 1.1)
Enter device number or keyword: 3
Enter graphics output file name: test.jpg
*** PLPLOT ERROR ***
plfntld: Out of memory while allocating font buffer.
The result is a jpg with a black background and nothing else.
Any assistance with how to solve this would be much appreciated.
Coming back to run it again today, it has decided to run fine.
I suspect it was probably because of a restart of my machine.
Also, these are some other actions I took necessary for plplot to run properly:
Have your PLPLOT_HOME set to your "plplot-xxx" folder and PLPLOT_LIB set to your "lib"
Append to your PATH environment variable the location of the .dll's for plplot
Have the following font files all stored together and in a folder where your
environment will look (cglobe.map, globe.map, usa.map, usaglobe.map, plstnd5.fnt,
Hope that helps :)
