Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

The summary says it all ;-)

When trying to use a wxt terminal in gnuplot script, running it with gnuplot opens a window, just long enough to show it did plot the graph, but then, about as quickly it opened, the window closes and disappears.

  set terminal wxt persist

doesn't work, neither using persist on the command line

FYI: aqua and x11 terminals do work as to be expected with persist

Can you please submit that bug report upstream and raise it on the mailing list? My hardware doesn't support Sierra and I cannot test this via SSH, but even if I could, this seems to be beyond a packaging problem.

It might be a problem because most of the core developer are Linux users. It look a long time before wxt even became remotely usable on Mac.

It might help if you could test an earlier version of Gnuplot to check whether this is a regression or not (whether it ever worked properly on Sierra).

Btw, it's not entirely impossible that wxWidgets would be to blame. (That's not to say that you shouldn't contact the gnuplot community.)

Could you perhaps try to replace wxWidgets-3.0 with wxWidgets-3.2 inside gnuplot's Portfile, add revision 1, rebuild gnuplot and check whether that makes any difference? (It might be even worse, I don't know, we never tested gnuplot against wxWidgets 3.1.)
