I have downloaded the newest Windows zip file from reduce and extracted it on a computer with Windows Vista.
The REDUCE windows application is working (I tried some simple commands.) For instance, loading package factor and factoring the example in the help worked.
But I have problems to plot:
After loading the package gnuplot I tried:
and I am getting the following error message:
+++ Error unable to establish pipe: "C:\Program Files\REDUCE\wgnuplot"
Of course there is no wgnuplot in the REDUCE directory. What have I to do to get it ?
Thank you very much for any help.
Elsewhere on sourceforge (and at various other places) you can find gnuplot, and at present you need to fetch that separately and put wgnuplot.exe and any associated files where Reduce can find them. http://www.gnuplot.info/ is a good placeto find the files!
For Linux etc it will also be necessary to install gnuplot using whatever normal software management tools your system has.
Hope this helps. Arthur
The subversion copy may now auto-install a copy of gnuplot in the Windows case. IN the fullness of time that will surface as a fresh snapshot too. For the moment my GUESS is that on Linux etc it will be better to get users to install gnuplot using their OS software management tools...
