I want to create a pie-chart. Is that possible with gnuplot and how to realize that?

Here's an example of a pie-chart created with gnuplot. Also, on the same site, you can find another example, including the script used for creating the pie-chart.

Gnuplot is a "function plotting program". If you can come up with a function that has pie-like characteristics, Gnuplot will plot it for you. But I doubt that this would be done easily.

I'm afraid the answer is: No, that's not possible.

Edit: Apparently, that's also what the Gnuplot FAQ says.
