  • 2D plotting library
  • Output to png, ps, eps, pdf, svg and X-window
  • Interactivity via cursor calls (similar to PGCURS, PGBAND)
  • Includes PGPLOT interface that compiles replacement versions of libpgplot and libcpgplot with many backwards compatible features
  • Minimal dependencies: depends only on very standard system libraries (cairo, png, X11)
  • Written in standard C with a Fortran 90/95/2003 interface
  • Compiles as a standalone library or can be incorporated into other codes
  • Interface routines handle both float and double precision input
  • Easily called from Fortran/C/C++ code
  • Initially written as a new backend for SPLASH: A visualisation tool for SPH data
  • fully functioning as the SPLASH backend, most of PGPLOT API implemented
