I mean the ability to produce a plot in a file (e.g ps or png) w/o the
need for opening a window or indeed using any graphical capabilities
in the computer. gnuplot does this easily, However OpenGL is meant for
screen rendering, so even if you wish to produce a png file, you must
first render the scene to the screen and then convert it to a png
There might be a solution for this using OpenGL pbuffers. I'm looking into it ..
