Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
It’s rare to go through a high school or college-level math course and not use a graphing calculator. While those calculators are cool, they are costly and often clunky to use and carry around.

It’ll produce easy-to-read graphs that are visible right from your Terminal. We’ll show you how to install the gnuplot program, and how you can put it to good use.
