Polar diagram with TCL

Polar diagram with TCL

Polar diagram with TCL

Hi everyone,

does anyone know a graphs library or any way to plot a polar diagram with TCL? Would it be possible to do it in an Excel/csv file?

Thank you!

RE: Polar diagram with TCL

Hi Natiya,

There is the Plotchart library:

If you want to see an example look at plotdemos7.tcl in examples/plotchart

In case that Plotchart is not installed on your system, you can use teacup like me:


C:\_mikrom\Work>teacup install Plotchart
Resolving Plotchart ... [package Plotchart 2.3.4 tcl @ http://teapot.activestate.com]

Retrieving package Plotchart 2.3.4 tcl ...@ http://teapot.activestate.com ... Ok

Installing into C:/Program Files (x86)/ActiveState/Tcl/lib/teapot

Installing package Plotchart 2.3.4 tcl

C:\_mikrom\Work>tclsh plotdemos7.tcl 

Working with Excel in Tcl on Windows is also possible:

RE: Polar diagram with TCL

That looks very useful, thank you! :)

RE: Polar diagram with TCL

any idea on how to close the plot pop-ups in example plotdemo7.tcl? Apparently, in order to save it, you need to execute the canvas bit but then one needs to close the plots manually?

Thank you!
