Question: Would this software be a candidate for a Cygwin package?
Disclaimer: My testing has been minimal so far, but the X GUI and command
line versions seem to work OK.
"Dataplot® is a free, public-domain, multi-platform (Unix, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows XP/VISTA/7/8/10) software system for scientific visualization, statistical analysis, and non-linear modeling."
It is associated with the NIST/SEMATECH Engineering Statistics Handbook:
It is available for Linux/Unix, Windows and Mac, and Cygwin is said to be supported/tested:
At first it wouldn't build for me.
Installing additional development libraries/packages were needed for the following:
gd png freetype X11 termcap
Then everything in the linux build script worked, except it gave:
ld: cannot find -ltermcap
Based on https://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin/2010-07/msg00389.html ,
the following change was made (and reported to the developer for a fix):
$ diff build_linux_gfortran.bash-bkup build_linux_gfortran.bash
< LDFLAG="$LDFLAG -lreadline -lhistory -ltermcap"
> # LDFLAG="$LDFLAG -lreadline -lhistory -ltermcap" change per cygwin mailing list, 2010-07
> LDFLAG="$LDFLAG -lreadline -lhistory -lncurses"
So, thanks to the list!
