Gnuplot and the Beta Distribution

I recently discovered gnuplot, a command-line plotting tool. I discovered it while trying to get some work done with Maxima, a Computer Algebra System Software. Gnuplot doesn’t make plots as pretty as R’s ggplots or d3 – but it is flexible and you get visual impressions of your math functions quickly. Here is a little animation that I have done with the Beta distribution: code and result.
