Bill Hassell's GNUplot Installation Instructions

- Create a gnuplot directory in /tmp or /var/tmp. Download GNUplot_HP.tar into the new directory, then run tar tvf on the package to view the contents (essentially a verification test): tar tvf GNUplot_HP.tar

- Unload the files using: tar xvf GNUplot_HP.tar List the contents to see that the RTR file exists along others.

- Run RTR to unpack using: ./RTR

For a minimum install and easy-to-remove process, use these answers to questions:

Install gnuplot [y]? y
Install package at dir [/usr/local]? /opt/gnuplot
Install shared files at [/opt/gnuplot/share]? <press RETURN for default>

- Installation is complete. All files are stored in /opt/gnuplot and takes
about 6.6 megs of space. Removal is simply a matter of removing
/opt/gnuplot and all files and subdirectories underneath.

- There are 2 choices for the /opt location:

1. Tell SarCheck where gnuplot is located using:
export GNUPLOTDIR=/opt/gnuplot/bin

2. Create a symbolic link:
ln -s /opt/gnuplot/bin/gnuplot /usr/local/bin/gnuplot
