I suspect TeXShop is aware of the /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin  
directories, but not of /sw/bin... If I use the following script  
(named "pgfscript.engine" and placed in ~/Library/TeXShop/engines) to  
run the LaTeX exemple that uses pgf, it works fine :

set path= ($path /sw/bin)
pdflatex --shell-escape "$1"

In that  case, is there any way to make TeXShop aware that gnuplot is  
in /sw/bin, or have I to install the other implementation of Gnuplot ?------------------------- Info --------------------------
