A free cross-platform library of fast C++ routines for the plotting of up to 3-ranged data. It can export to bitmap and vector EPS/SVG files. There are window interfaces (GLUT/FLTK/Qt) and console tools. MathGL can be used from C/Fortran/Python/Octav/Lua


  • high-quality scientific graphics (raster and vector EPS, SVG)
  • large (may be largest!) set of plot types
  • fast data plotting and handling of large data arrays
  • work in window and in console modes
  • many interfaces (C/C++/Fortran/Python/Octave/...)

User Reviews

  • Are there any examples which can be compiled using MSVC out-of-box?

  • Amazing Library! I'm using it in my own project here on SourceForge, which is a simple crossover between a tabular calculus (just like Excel) and gnuplot intended for the students of physics. (Just search for "numere")

  • I have used this library in several projects, works pretty good and puts my simulation proyects to other level when the binaries themselves plot the result

  • How to use it on windows xp?

  • Thanks for good program!
