Of course we all know that we can use gretl for producing pretty graphs.
Then, you can save them in some format (eg pdf) and include them in
your documents: slides, article, PhD thesis, whatever. We all do that.
However, if you need to customise them, the choice of the TikZ format
may be especially convenient for LaTeX users, since a TikZ file is
essentially a (relatively little) text file in which you can insert
graphical elements, text, TeX maths and so on.
Since turning a gretl graph into a TikZ file is quite easy (thanks to
gnuplot), I wrote a little "how-to" on the gretl wiki.
I hope this is useful.
I looked at your examples in the wiki. The "slow easy way" works OK. But
in the "fast easy way" I only obtain the .plt file. I miss a way to run
gnuplot from inside gretl and put the .tex files in the correct place.
My script is
open AWM --quiet
series tbal = XTN - MTN
list X = XTN MTN tbal
literal set terminal lua tikz createstyle
literal set output "tradebal.tex"
literal set key below
options time-series with-lines
But this only creates a file 'gpttmp01.plt' in my working directory. I
tried several ways of running gnuplot to create the .tex files in the
correct place, but I had no much success. The best of them is just to
add --output=display in the last line
'end plot --output=display'
but, of course, this gives an error in the screen "El archivo de imagen
«/home/ignacio/.gretl/gretltmp.png» no contiene datos" because
gretltmp.png is not created and the .tex files are not placed in my
workdir, but in my home directory.
