gle - Graphics Layout Engine
gle [options] file.gle ...
GLE (Graphics Layout Engine) is a graphics scripting language designed
for creating publication quality graphs, plots, diagrams, figures and
slides. GLE supports various graph types (function plots, histograms,
bar graphs, scatter plots, contour lines, color maps, surface plots,
...) through a simple but flexible set of graphing commands. More
complex output can be created by relying on GLE’s scripting language,
which is full featured with subroutines, variables, and logic control.
GLE relies on LaTeX for text output and supports mathematical formulea
in graphs and figures. GLE’s output formats include EPS, PS, PDF, JPEG,
GLE’s documentation is distrubuted in PDF format and can be found at
