Grace is a WYSIWYG 2D plotting tool for the X Window System and M*tif.

From the Grace User Manual:

[Grace's] capabilities are roughly similar to GUI-based programs like Sigmaplot or Microcal Origin plus script-based tools like Gnuplot or Genplot. Its strength lies in the fact that it combines the convenience of a graphical user interface with the power of a scripting language which enables it to do sophisticated calculations or perform automated tasks.

Using Grace on the HPC#

The recommended way to interactively run Grace is via our 'xmgrace' Open OnDemand app. Refer to our OOD documentation to get started.
