That's really nice! I didn't know terminals could do that.
I notice that when I execute those commands on Linux in an xterm
(version 344) built with support for sixel graphics, the plot is
displayed in color on a white background. When I execute those same
commands in mintty 2.9.6, however, the plot is displayed on the
default black background and only the surface (in purple) is
visible. To see the rest of the plot, still on a black background,
gnuplot -e "set term sixel monochrome" -e "splot [x=-3:3] [y=-3:3] sin(x) * cos(y)"
Is this a bug in mintty that it doesn't use a white background for
