is this what you're looking for?

I agree that this is not put together well, esp when it comes
to multiple platforms.

let us know how GMT does - if possible, perhaps you could 
leave an output file lying around showing us the capabilities...
or is there something like this on the site in hawaii?

[g.gnuplot plug follows]

personally, I've been using g.gnuplot so that I can output rasters,
vectors, sites, etc, in TeX or FrameMaker files (maybe using Xfig to
annotate)... g.gnuplot is on moon - the big problem that I have with
it is getting a 1:1 aspect ratio (possible, but sometimes a pain).
It's not really meant for high volume map production, but it's great,
e.g., for putting 3-D views of raster maps (surface suspended above
contours) in papers.
