This package was approved by moderator AdmiringWorm on 3/5/2017.

Gnuplot is a portable command-line driven graphing utility for Linux, OS/2, MS Windows, OSX, VMS, and many other platforms. The source code is copyrighted but freely distributed (i.e., you don't have to pay for it). It was originally created to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data interactively, but has grown to support many non-interactive uses such as web scripting. It is also used as a plotting engine by third-party applications like Octave. Gnuplot has been supported and under active development since 1986.

To install Gnuplot, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install gnuplot --version 5.0.5

To upgrade Gnuplot, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade gnuplot --version 5.0.5

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
