    Hey,

    does anyone know a good Graphmatica equivalent for OS X? I've tried geoMac and EdenGraph, but like neither of those.

    EdenGraph can't plot multiple curves at the same time, and while dragging, the curves disappear, while with geoMac I have to manually specify the range when drawing a graph of the function, and I don't know how to get the coordinate of a point on the graph.

    Jaka

    how about mathematica. don't know anything about it but it's popular. google it and check it out.

    Yeah, I have and I use Mathematica, though I'm really not that experienced in it, and drawing graphs of functions was much simpler in Graphmatica :rolleyes:

    What sort of plots are you after? I haven't used graphmatic, but basic plotting (2D/3D) in Mathematica is not that complicated. Mind you, getting the `fiddly bits' right takes some effort.

    If you're plotting from numerical data, then I suggest that you use Matlab/Octave.

    I'm plotting functions, not graphs based on any imported values.

    You're probably right, I'll take a better look at plotting graphs in Mathematica, that way I can, at least, use the same tool for all my (current) Mathematical needs.

    Heh, who would have thought: /Applications/Utilities/Grapher.app
