### 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...

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?

Wrong standard BoundingBox in terminal postscript eps
Hello, Recently I noticed a problem with the standard BoundingBox of the "terminal postscript eps". In the example below, the lower part of the letter "g" is already outside the BoundingBox. Although fixbb may be used to correct the box, it also changes all other borders leading to inconsistent left and right borders if applied to many files. Is there any known solution to automatically correct these problems? Is this behaviour considered to be a bug in gnuplot?
