Bode plots with gnuplot

As an electrical/computer engineering student, I make Bode plots from time to time. I found this article at that explains how to make Bode plots with gnuplot. I haven’t tested this out myself as I don’t currently need to do this.

N.B. I didn’t provide an actual link above so I don’t hotlink.

Installing Gnuplot on Mac OS X

It was easy installing gnuplot with MacPorts, although it might take a little while. I just typed in

sudo port install gnuplot

and it installed after a while. Then I type in gnuplot in the Terminal, and it starts up. Just type in

set term aqua and then do a quick test by typing in plot sin(x). You should get a plot of sin(x) if everything installed correctly.
