.SH SYNOPSIS
.B lasergnu
[ flags ] plot-command...
.SH DESCRIPTION
.I lasergnu

in an environment to produce typeset output on an IMAGEN  or
Postscript printer.
.PP
The 
.B gnuplot

.B plot-command
are performed and the output sent to the printer. 
If the 
.B -f
option specifies a file for input, the plot command is optional. 
The command-line plot commands are executed prior to any in the
file(s).
.PP
For example, to plot the function
.I sin(x)
from -1 to +1, and to use printer im1, use the command
.br
.nf
    lasergnu -Pim1 'plot [-1:1] sin(x) with lines'
