Hello,

In GDL (gnudatalanguage) we use two "private" plplot functions: plstrl and plP_mmpcy to get string width:
http://gnudatalanguage.cvs.sf.net/viewvc/gnudatalanguage/gdl/src/plotting_xyouts.cpp?view=markup

That functions well but is not allowed in Debian for examples, as there plplot is compiled with -fvisibility=hidden.

Are there any "public" equivalents or any elegant way to achieve this functionality without #including  <plplot/plplotP.h>?

Thanks,
Sylwester
