View Full Version : superscript/subscript in the labels read from data file

1 1 A_{3}
2 2 C_{2}
3 3 ^{5}C_{1}

I have an input file like this to be plotted. The third column is for the labels on that point (in latex format). How do I get to appear these labels on the plot like they would appear after the latex compilation (as superscript/subscript/Greek alphabet etc.)

in which program do you plot it? Matlab?

Just google matplotlib and gallery to see one way to do this, using python scripts. matplotlib has great support for tex-like text.

Sorry, it is in gnuplot.

Thanks for the suggestion. I shall try that.
