Wait, diagram: you mean graphical representations of numerical data? On
read I thought you meant things like org charts.
Applications that come to mind:
I use metapost most of the time, because of its truly neat integration
I find GnuPlot confusing, Igor rather expensive (although worth the
money) and R
has a learning curve that is said to be steep (even by LaTeX
standards). The other
- even more expensive solution - is Mathematica, but only if you have
other uses for it.
