The gnceplot is portable command-line driven graphing utility and support many types of plots in both 2D and 3D.It was originally visualize mathematical function and data interactively, but has grown to support many non-interactive uses such as web scripting.It has been supported and under active development.since 1986

The LaTex combination with Gnuplot is an ideal platform to produce scientific and engineering documents i.e research publication,monograms and thesis.It provides great features for layout quality,handling graphics and mathematics and other scientific features.

Scientific features which is almost unthinkable till now in word processor. Moreover it is mandatory scientific publishers.However the research community especially the student sum to be unaware of it.
