Description
            This library is supposed to help you to make plots as if you were using Matlab.


By default all plotlib function names are defined with a leading underscore, for
example

_gcf, _gca, _plot, _surf, ...

in order to differentiate these plotlib functions from the original scilab
functions having the same name. If you want to use the classical names without
underscores, which will break some native Scilab graphic functions, just add the
line

plotlibmode

in your .scilab file, which can be edited by calling

xpad SCIHOME/.scilab

Hello,

Firstly thank you for developing this wonderful module for SciLab.  I am a long time
Matlab user and your work made the transition to SciLab much less painful.  I have been
using plotlib0.21 with Scilab5.1 with great success.  

Recently I upgraded to SciLab5.2.1 and downloaded plotlib0.41 though the ATOMS module
manager.  Since this time I have not been able to make the "_trisuf" command work.  I
tried the most recent "nightly build" and this did not seem to affect the problem.  Using
the example given in the trisurf helpfile, the input and output looks like this:

//-------------------------------------------------------------------------
load('tridem.dat');
 
-->_trisurf(nodes,xy(1,:),xy(2,:),P(:,3)','facecolor','interp');
 !--error 8 
Inconsistent addition.

at line     137 of function _update_leaf called by :  
at line     301 of function _mainPlot called by :  
at line      17 of function _trisurf called by :  
_trisurf(nodes,xy(1,:),xy(2,:),P(:,3)','facecolor','interp');
//-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am running SciLab on Linux Mint 8 - 64bit.  Any help you could provide in solving this
problem would be much appreciated.  Again, thank you for your hard work.

-Clayton

I have uploaded a new revision 0.41-3 solving this bug. For the moment, only the source
files are available but they will enter the Atoms compilation chain rapidly.

Thank you for addressing my concerns in such an expedient manner.  Unfortunately I
continue to encounter the same error as above using revision 0.41-3 of the plotlib toolbox
and Scilab 5.2.2.

Hi,

In fact 0.41-3 did not fix this problem, but 0.42 does.

I am running SciLab 5.2.2 (As administrator) on Windows 7
I downloaded plotlib0.41 though the ATOMS module manager.
But it seems is not working.

Look at this simple script in Scilab Console:
//-------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ___________________________________________        
                       scilab-5.2.2

                 Consortium Scilab (DIGITEO)

               Copyright (c) 1989-2007 (ENPC)
        ___________________________________________        
 
 
Startup execution:
  loading initial environment

Start plotlib toolbox 0.41
Load macros
Load help
 
-->x=1:1:100;
-->_plot(x, sin(x));

//-------------------------------------------------------------------------
This part of the code is working OK, the graphic window is OK
with the sine curve.
But when  go to the graphic window menu...Edit Figure Properties...
The Figure editor is empty and in the Scilab Console:
//-------------------------------------------------------------------------
  !--error 999 
TCL_EvalFile, at line 1 of file C:/PROGRA~1/SCILAB~1.2/modules/graphics/tcl/ged/Figure.tcl
	can't read "wfortree": no such variable
    while executing
"$wfortree.y set 0.0 1.0".
at line      20 of function ged_figure called by :  
at line      87 of function ged called by :  
ged(8,0);
while executing a callback
//-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Instead, the Axes editor seems to be working OK

Regards!

Hi,

for the moment you should consider that the plotlib is uncompatible with the graphical
editor. Sorry.
