SIXEL color graphics DEMO (xterm pl#301 and gnuplot)
#
# SIXEL color graphics DEMO
#
# xterm pl#301 with --enable-sixel-graphics option
# gnuplot with --with-bitmap-terminals option
#
# Now the color palette of xterm VT-340 mode is limited to 16.
# If you want to change it to 256, apply the following patch.
# https://gist.github.com/saitoha/7822989/raw/20727b88f0f826bfcb9d644907944b29a456b67f/graphics.c.diff
#
# If you are using stable version of gnuplot,
# you can also use sixel format without using sixel driver
# by installing netpbm and doing the following operations.
#
# gnuplot> set terminal pngcairo
# gnuplot> set output '| pngtopnm | pnmquant 16 | ppmtosixel'
# gnuplot> splot x * x
