Command Line

The primary method for translating input expressions to SVG or PNG output files is the clip command line program. A typical invocation looks like this:

$ clip --in my_chart.clp --out my_chart.svg

See below for a full list of supported command line options. Besides the command line interface, clip also offers a C API that can be used to render charts directly from your application.
