PLoT Scheme

Abstract

We present PLTplot, a plotting package for PLT Scheme. PLTplot provides a basic interface for producing common types of plots such as line and vector field plots from Scheme functions and data, an advanced interface for producing customized plot types, and support for standard curve fitting. It incorporates renderer constructors, transformers from data to its graphical representation, as values. Plots are also values. PLTplot is built as an extension on top of the thirdparty PLplot C library using PLT Scheme’s C foreign function interface. This paper presents the core PLTplot API, examples of its use in creating basic and customized plots and fitting curves, and a discussion of its implementation.
