I wrote some plotting routines to visualize ocean model results

Sweet! This is good for me, because ocean modelling is an eventual
goal of my underway Master's thesis.

I called this package Yapso, Yet Another Plotting System for Octave.

Heh, it was a matter of time before someone decided to use a name of
this type (yet another...) for a plotting engine.

It is intended to be compatible with Matlab plotting commands.

Good intentions!

What I missed from existing graphics packages was offscreen
rendering (matlab's -nodisplay option) which allows you to create
plots from a cronjob or from a webserver cgi.

I get the impression that you were hankering for other things too. The
quivers look nice. BTW, what possessed you to write a plotting engine
from scratch instead of working on one of the existent ones?

You can download it from and demos can
be found at

I am reporting a successful and easy installation of your software and
a successful run of the demo.

Yapso is bundled as an octave package which is installed by "pkg install

It would be nice to get it packaged for Debian and derivatives. I'd
offer to do it, but I'd rather not make promises I'm not certain I can

Good work!
