Gnuplot Copyright Information

We suggest that you download and make use of the fine plotting package Gnuplot [Williams and KelleyWilliams and Kelley1993]. which we use as the graphics engine to display the results of analyses. Gnuplot is freely available for UNIX, Macintosh and MS-Windows machines. It is quite easy to use, produces nice results and all the input files are plain text. We reprint the copyright information for Gnuplot verbatim:
