DariusRegards,Dear Walt* I don't know why I have got cairo driver, but I have. (Maybe tdm-gcc (which I used to build plplot) includes some more dependencies necessarily for building this driver? I don't know.)
Just short comment:I don't know how to generate jpeg, tif, png file with PLplot, but Inkscape (http://www.inkscape.org) is able to open and edit SVG files. Users can then export *.svg file to *.png file.
*"One last attempt: can any of you point me to how to build thingsso that I can generate a jpeg, tif, png, etc. file? This would be anice feature to include. I can produce a .svg file that can beinserted as a picture into an Open Office document and I cangenerate with wingcc on the screen and incorporate the plotinto Word as a screen shot, so those are two ways to keep theplotting results that I know how to do."

I lied. I didn't completely give up and have made someprogress.I completely disabled cygwin and went back to the commandand version of cmake that Darius suggested with Mingw files.This is OK because the Fortran Tools do not include cygwin(just mingw) so the compilations can be consistent. I think allthe problems have been caused by multiple versions of librariesand incorrect paths, but who knows ...I still can't get cairo, but that is OK. The examples x??f.f90 workand I was able to provide all the files needed to relocate (necessaryto distribute). So I am pretty happy. And plan to include plplot inthe next version of the Fortran Tools. I need to write up a littlesection explaining it with a couple of simple examples, just likeI have done with the other tools (fortran.com/Fortran_Tools.pdf).One last attempt: can any of you point me to how to build thingsso that I can generate a jpeg, tif, png, etc. file?

What would I do without theinternet? Thanks again.On Wed, Apr 30, 2014 at 11:42 PM, Arjen Markus <Arjen.Markus@deltares.nl> wrote:

It would be nice to see PLplot in your FortranTools set. But unfortunately I do not see anything obviously wrong with your approach. Odd, very odd.
What version of the gfortran compiler are you using exactly? Have you tried the C examples? (There is less code and linking involved with the C examples, it might shed some dim light on the problem.) On my system I see no problems at all.
Hm, there is mention in the CMake files of problems occurring with GTK+3 – some clashes that occur for GTK+2 only components. You could try and build with the option -DDROP_GTK_PLUS_2_BUILDS=ON – it has some connections to cairo too (xcairo to be precise).
Re: Porsches: no, they do not use anymore, not in that way at least.

Subject: Re: [Plplot-general] Including cairo driver
Please do not spend any more time worrying about me
and plplot. I can compile and run the x??f.f90 examples,
but only using the wingcc format. All the others I
have tried either seg fault or gave some other problem.
I produced a PDF file, but Adobe reader says the format
is not good.
What I really would like to do is produce jpeg/tif, or some
such files. I looked at some documentation, but couldn't
figure it out.
Maybe I will come back at some later date and start fresh.
PS: we lived in Bremerhaven (US Navy) long, long ago and
came to The Netherlands several times--stayed near
Anne Frank's house, if I recall. Did the tulip festival one
year. And the Fortran standards committee met one time
in The Hague. I loved the highway police who drove white
Porches with the tops down, even in the rain. I don't suppose
they still do that--and that may date me back further than
you could possibly imagine! (We had an Austin-Healey,
which could run circles around a Porche in those days.)
Anyway, the help you gave me was much appreciated.
My next project is to try to figure out how to use Glade.
Following a tutorial has been successful so far.
