The sunplot GUI is meant to be a debugging tool and hence it does not have the ability to output results into a figure file, such as postscript, jpeg, or eps. It is, however, a handy tool to quickly view results without having to execute third-party software. Sunplot has the ability to view all of the data output from SUNTANS on several processors, and it only requires the X11 libraries.
This howto describes how to view the results presented in the two-dimensional river plume
example and assumes that the data has been created in the respective data directory
examples/boundaries/data. Details on how to create this data is given in
and details on how to compile
sunplot are described in Section 1.1.
