Grace is a scientific plotting and graphing program which uses a WYSIWYG interface. It is primarily designed for plotting in 2D and can run on most unix-based systems.

Using Grace on RCC Resources

Grace is available both as a CLI tool (HPC and Spear) and a GUI tool (HPC and Spear).

To open an interactive Grace shell on HPC or Spear, use the grace command after loading the GNU and Grace modules:

$ module load gnu grace
$ grace

To open an interactive GUI console on the HPC or Spear, be sure to connect to Spear in a way that you can run graphical applications. Then run:

$ module load gnu grace
$ xmgrace
