The application plotmtv is a fast multi-purpose plotting program for visualization of scientific data in an X11-window environment. Each plot comes with a simple but functional Graphical User Interface which allows users to zoom in or pan to areas of interest on the plot or to toggle between 2D and 3D plots.

Please read the **Introduction**
which will give details as to how to program correctly to get the desired
data plots, and the additional commands available to change the
data.
Some of the different graphing capabilities include:

**
2D Curves (Connected sets of (x,y) points in 2-space)**
