I know I can export a plot in octave as a PNG but is it possible to export a plot as a vector graphic image?

The reason I ask is that some of the points on my plot are very close together and I would like to be able to zoom in on them using another image program like inkscape or gimp.

Just end your filename with svg instead of png and octave, at least, will do the right thing.

  • Not used matlab in years, and just wanted to be explicit, but thanks for your comment, @thang
