CLOT (clot-20110308.src.tbz) is a simple library to plot data sets in charts of different types. Currently it supports bar, histogram, line, and pie charts, all with some optional graphic decorations. It requires SCLF and CL-GD. flower

Here are some examples:
[line chart example] A simple line chart.
[bar chart example] A bar chart with bars overlapped 50% horizontally.
[scattered bar chart example] A bar chart with scattered bars.
[pie chart example] A pie chart with a gray shadow on the background.
[histogram example] A histogram with areas filled with a washed down colour.
[mixed chart example] Four different charts on the same image. Note the automatic scaling done by clot.

The above images have been produced with the following code:

(be multi-data '(("Milano" "red" 0 2.3 3.2 14 5)
                 ("Bonn" "green" 5 13 7.5 5 0)
                 ("Birmingham" "blue" 0.9 2.2 3.1 0 2.5))
    simple-data '(("beer" "green" 200)
                  ("soda" "red" 20)
                  ("juice" "yellow" 40)
