how to plot contour or vector with "GNUPLOT"

I want to perform the postprocess about the CFD data, but i do not know the data format of the GNUPLOT! or can it plot contour or vector!

I am wandering is there a gook postprocess software like tecplot under windows in the linux system?

I know the paraview, but i do not its data format?

Well, GNUPLOT is really a nice software to plot simple things but, I guess, it's not the right choice when talking about post processing CFD data. Otherwise, visualization software like ParaView, Ensight, TecPlot, MayaVI, VisIt, etc... have support for a bunch of file formats ranging from simple raw data to very powerfull parallel formats.

Take a look at and choose a file format to learn about. I'd suggest the Ensight's format, for me, it's the easiest format among those supported by PV. I've put some PV stuffs available to download at
