Project Summary

MagPlot is a program for generating charts like gnuplot.
The idea is that while TeX is acknowledged for its quality
of output, many charts and diagrams especially in Excel
I have seen are...not so good.
So for my own satisfaction I wanted to implement
a program which maintains a high quality standard.
For that reason I based my work on Edward Tufte's
"The Visual Display of Quantitative Information"

Core intention:
- Very good readability.
- Conservative approach:
Any feature which sounds "cool" but does not serve
a specific purpose or which is harmful for data
display will be ditched.
- No 3D charts
- No more than 2 axes
- No bars with moire pattern
- etc.
- Usability for speed and quality: One mode for fast
drawing so that the charts can be used for (hopefully)
high-performance real-time display on the screen
while supporting high-quality output in the other mode.
- Console for users which cannot live without keyboard.
