Has anyone had any experience with using Gnuplot LaTeX output with
pdfLaTeX? The basic output is an EPS picture that is included in a
LaTeX picture environment (which is, again, included in the document
proper). It's easy enough to convert the EPS to PDF, but i've been
having problems with offsets etc. -- I guess perhaps my conversion has
fouled up the bounding box. Cropping to the bounding box in Acrobat
didn't make it much better, so now I have to manually place the PDF
plot inside the LaTeX axis labels etc. So -- I just wondered if there
is an automated way of doing this? (Perhaps Gnuplot itself has some
functionality in this direction?)
