Hi Nicholas - Thanks Guys - consider closed please
That's great - I didn't think of the packages version (I'm very new to Otave) and when I check I had 1.2.3 like ?Doug?, he upgraded to 1.3.0 and his became like good like yors - so makes total sense it is that
I tried to upgrade to statistics-1.3.0 but then it told me it wanted dependency Octave 4.0.0 and the presentation I needed it for was 3pm so I couldn't risk a new version so close to deadline
But that explains everything so I'm very confident will fix mine too.
Guys - so I'm very new to Octave at all - these 3 different Graphics packages I didn't really grasp, .... Do they all use different commands or is the interface completely standardised?
I know I've sometimes accidentally been reading GnuPlot documentation and found the commands dont quite work in Octave so I'm guessing Octave has a standard interface it converts into Gnu Plot or something
Is it easy to interact directly with GnuPlot ? I'm guessing it is probably more advanced than Octave for plotting, and that it's target is professonal science publications
Thanks very much.
