This card describes the features of gnuplot-mode for Emacs.
Gnuplot-mode is intended for composing scripts for the
\textsc{gnuplot} plotting program.  It offers functions for sending
commands or entire scripts to the \textsc{gnuplot} program as well as
various functions to aid in composing scripts.  It works with any
version of \textsc{gnuplot} above 3.5.  See the comments in the
file \file{gnuplot.el} for instructions on installing gnuplot-mode.

\vspace{2ex}

Put the lines in the box below in your \file{.emacs} file or in the
system wide start-up file to enable gnuplot-mode.  The first two lines
make Emacs recognize the functions described in the ``Starting
gnuplot-mode'' section on this page.  The third line causes Emacs to
put all files ending in \file{.gp} into gnuplot-mode.  The final line
defines a hotkey -- in this case \key{F9} -- for starting
gnuplot-mode.

\begin{description}
\item[Using the gnuplot-process buffer] \hfill \\
  The process buffer contains an active \textsc{gnuplot} command line
  for interacting with \textsc{gnuplot} directly.  The \texttt{M-C-p}
  and \texttt{M-C-f} key sequences will plot using the contents of
  the gnuplot script buffer.
\item[Using the GUI to set command arguments] \hfill \\
  \texttt{C-c C-c} and \texttt{S-mouse-2} are used to invoke the
  graphical tool for setting command arguments.  Use text fields and
  option menus to choose appropriate values.  Menus and buttons are
  activated with the middle mouse button.  A few plot options may not
  be fully supported.
\item[Customizing variables] \hfill \\
  The graphical customization tool for variables can be invoked using
  \texttt{C-c C-z}.  Descriptions of the variables relevant to
  gnuplot-mode can be obtained by using \texttt{gnuplot} as the
  regular expression for \texttt{M-x apropos}.
\item[On-line help] \hfill \\
  Keyword completion and on-line help require that the
  \textsc{gnuplot} info file be available and that the info-look
  package be installed.  The info file can be made from the
  documentation supplied with the \textsc{gnuplot} distribution and
  the info-look package is a standard part of Emacs 20.  Users of
  XEmacs or Emacs 19 should download \file{info-look.el} from the
  gnuplot-mode homepage.
\item[Using pm3d] \hfill \\
  All features of the pm3d patch to \textsc{gnuplot} should be
  available when using gnuplot-mode.  One particularly useful feature
  of pm3d is the ability to push a cursor position into the
  clipboard.  This is done by double-clicking \texttt{mouse-1} in the
  plot window, then doing \texttt{M-x yank-clipboard-selection}
  (usually bound to \texttt{mouse-2}) in the gnuplot script buffer.

      {\large Toolbar variables}
    \end{center}

\end{center}

\noindent These variables control the use and location of the
toolbar in XEmacs.  The toolbar has buttons equivalent to the key
sequences \texttt{C-c C-l}, \texttt{C-c C-r}, \texttt{C-c C-b},
\texttt{C-c C-e}, and \texttt{C-c C-h}.

\variable{gnuplot-display-toolbar-flag}{nil}{Non-nil means to display
  a toolbar if using XEmacs.}

\variable{gnuplot-use-toolbar}{left-toolbar}{Location of XEmacs
  toolbar.  Valid values are \texttt{left-toolbar},
  \texttt{right-toolbar}, \texttt{top-toolbar}, \texttt{bottom-toolbar},

      {\large Set Arguments}
    \end{center}
  \end{Boxedminipage}
\end{center}

\noindent These variables control the behavior of the graphical
interface to setting command arguments.  \texttt{C-c C-c} with point
over a command or \texttt{S-mouse-2} with the mouse cursor over a
command will cause a small frame to pop open with which you can set
command arguments.  Green button with bold text are bound to pup-up
menus --- use the mouse-2 to select an item from the menu.  Grey fields
are for filling in strings or numbers.  Hit the \textbf{[Set Options]}
button with \texttt{mouse-2} to insert command arguments into the
script.  You can also use the \key{tab} key to move among the widgets
and \key{ret} to push the buttons.
