It took me a second to figure out what this awkward sign after console should be... :-D
To infinity and back (in 25 seconds) ;-)

Yeh, I read about the possibility to send commands to my operating system.
But I completely forgot about it, because until now I never saw any use of it.
Now I find it very useful!
Thanks again.

Hi Neil,
using the xstata works, but it is a very slowly (console: 25 sec vs.
xwindow: 75 sec). Exporting to eps works fine. Thanks for the advice.

Shouldn't that be console ∞ v's xstata 75 seconds if the console
doesn't actually produce the desired graph? ;-)

I think imagemagick ( may be a better
solution to get the eps to png conversion directly (see ).

You may well already know this, but you can call the conversion from
eps to png from within your do-file using something like...

graph export mygraph.eps, replace
! convert mygraph.eps mygraph.png
