I have no idea how to launch gnuplot. The only thing Finder finds for 
gnuplot is

    Applications > Aquaterm > Adapters > gnuplot > ReadMe and ReleaseNotes.

ReadMe says:

    The adapter aquaterm.trm is now distributed as part of gnuplot
    version 4 and to avoid confusion, it is not distributed as part of
    AquaTerm anymore.

    Get gnuplot from http://gnuplot.sourceforge.net

    Make sure you install AquaTerm first and then follow the normal
    instructions for compiling gnuplot 4.x.x, which are: 
    make install

The trouble is that I am terminally terminal impaired. I tried to do so 
and nothing happened.

Also, on the gnuplot download page, I read

  # Gnuplot 4.0 for the Macintosh *to be* available at
    homepage.mac.com/gnuplot/ <http://homepage.mac.com/gnuplot/> (or
    somewhere else, please wait).

Go figure.
