I have been learning more than I anticipated I would about gnuplot lately. I've been making up figures for a professor's paper (for which I've been doing research this summer) and now that we're down to the near end, there seem to be a fair bit of specifics involved. I've also picked up some useful abbreviations:

 original short form xrange, yrange xr, yr with wi using u l, p, lp lines, points, linespoints

It's been especially useful to have found out how to make plots shell script style, a la:

#!/usr/bin/gnuplotset terminal postscript eps enhanced colorset output "something.eps"set size squareset xr [-1:1]plot exp(-x**2) ti "woo"
