gnuplot_open_pipe — Open a pipe to a gnuplot process for visualization of images and control values.
gnuplot_open_pipe( : : : GnuplotFileID)
gnuplot_open_pipe opens a pipe to a gnuplot sub-process with which subsequently images can be visualized as 3D-plots (gnuplot_plot_image) or control values can be visualized as 2D-plots (gnuplot_plot_ctrl). The sub-process must be terminated after displaying the last plot by calling gnuplot_close. The corresponding identifier for the gnuplot output stream is returned in GnuplotFileID.
gnuplot_open_pipe is only implemented for Unix because gnuplot for Windows (wgnuplot) cannot be controlled by an external process.
Identifier for the gnuplot output stream.
gnuplot_open_pipe returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the sub-process could be created. Otherwise, an exception is raised.
