PyXPlot for Debian
------------------

PyXPlot's documentation can be found in the pyxplot-doc package and is located
in the /usr/share/doc/pyxplot-doc in HTML and PDF formats.

The PyXPlot home page also contains an index of example PyXPlot graphs and
charts at <http://www.pyxplot.org.uk/examples/>.


Enabling Optional Features
--------------------------

A number of features in pyxplot require additional libraries to be installed.
These packages are "recommended" by the pyxplot package and so should be
automatically installed.

* Postscript display

The "display" output defaults to using /usr/bin/gv if it is installed. Other
programs can be used to display postscript files including okular and evince.
See the "set viewer" command in the documentation for how to customise this
feature.

* Raster output (PNG, TIFF, JPEG)

The output format of the plot can be changed to a number of different formats,
for example:

  set terminal png
  set output "test.png"
  refresh

Conversion from the native EPS output to PNG, TIFF or JPEG format requires
the "convert" command which can be found in either the imagemagick or
graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat packages.
