### postscript terminal : no overline

• Email

i gather that an overline is not possible with the postscript
terminal.

e.g. in LaTeX, $\overline{x}$ gives you "xbar". ps_guide.ps doesn't
have this listed.

The postscript terminal per se is not a problem.
PostScript itself, on the other hand....

Anyhow

The Unicode character COMBINING MACRON at code point 0304
or perhaps CONBINING OVERSCORE at code point 0305 should do
what you want.  There are instructions in the .../term/PostScript
subdirectly describing one way of persuading PostScript to accept
unicode characters.  So in case of desparation that would be one
way to go.  But it's painful.

It would be easier to use the pdfcairo terminal, which understands
UTF-8 natively, and then convert the output to PostScript if that
is really necessary.  The pdf2ps conversion program knows how to
dummy up a termporary encoding for single characters so that
PostScript can print them.

Wasn't enhanced text mode invented to make things like this possible?

It's right there among the examples of 'help enhanced':

set term post enh
set out "test.ps"
set label 1 "~x{.8-}"  # <---- there
set out

epslatex terminal differs from postscript terminal
As the subject suggests, I'm wondering why exactly the epslatex terminal differs from the postscript terminal. So you might say "duh!" because after all this is what you want but hold it for a moment. Compare the results of the following script: set term epslatex color set out "test_epslatex.eps" test set term post eps color set out "test_posteps.eps" test At least my gnuplot (v4.0.0) produces only 4 colors when using the epslatex terminal and the pointypes are severly reduced as well. What is even worse - they are in a different order (pt...

replacement for terminal postscript
Hello, 60 minutes I made promotion for gnuplot and its incredible possibilities, then I got the kiss of death: How can I use the eps output in word? I'm an user of LaTeX and so I made promotion with the terminal postscript eps enhanced. The question: Which terminal is suitable for M\$ products? I need the same output like postscript espacially the german specials umlaute. Is there a terminal with the features /Symbol, sub- and superscript, line feed /n? And can I use my batch files without any changes to get the same output - I try "png" with linetype 7 and got a b...

postscript enhanced terminal
Hi all, It seems that I have a little problem with the postscript enhanced feature. I have to produce a simple 2-D scatter plot and I'd like to have the names of the variables on the axis. Unfortunately the variable on the y-axis has a rather complex name: a Greek capital delta with a tilde on top. To be clear: something that in LaTeX would be written as \tilde{\Delta} Knowing that the "enhance" feature of various terminal drivers in gnuplot has been recently improved I decided to give it a try (not before carefully reading the output of the "help enhanced&qu...

arrowheads too long in PostScript terminal
Consider the following: set term post eps enhanced color solid "Times-Italic" 15 set output 'c:\mydocs\math\function.R3.eps' set term windows; set output set label "problem?" at 1,1 point pt 7 offset 2,-2 set arrow from 0,1 to 1,1 front lw 3 plot [0:3][0:3] x Look close and it is clear that arrow head extends beyond the point (1,1). I.e., line width was not accounted for when the arrowhead was constructed. (Or perhaps just the mitre was neglected.) It is very odd that this is also true for the filled arrow head, but it is. I hazard a guess that the...

Font size postscript terminal
Hello all, I set up a postscript terminal with options eps enhanced and using the fontfile for european modern roman optimized for 10pt as suggested in the documentation. The problem now is, that using the postscript file in latex with includegraphics and no scaling the font is very small in comparison to the 10 pt latex font. To get approximately the same size I have to scale the font in gnuplot to 22 ("FSRM1000" 22). Is this normal? Where the differences in size come from?
