clip (the command line illustration processor) is an open-source command line program and software library for creating charts and other data-driven illustrations.
In essence, clip consists of a library of drawing commands. This command library includes high-level building blocks for creating common chart types as well as lower-level drawing primitives such as markers, arrows and lines.
When called from the command line, clip reads input data in text and CSV format and produces the output chart as a SVG or PNG file. Additionaly, clip is available as the libclip software library which can be embedded into any application that supports a C FFI.
