does anyone know why the testing gnuplot package does not support PDF output ?

Stable's doesn't, unstable's doesn't, seems logical enough that testing's
wouldn't either, although I no longer have a testing box to check directly.

When has gnuplot ever supported output to PDF?

According to the Documentation,


pdf is one of the possible terminal.

But this possibility is not present in the Debian package,
hence my question.
Nevertheless, I confess that I just decovered gnuplot:
my guess is that pdf is a very new terminal which was
judged not enough stable/mature to the Debian maintainer,
and I would like to know the why before to go further
in my stuff.

I guess the answer to your "why doesn't it?" question is simply "the
developers haven't seen a reason to do it."

The list of available terminal is so impressive that
it will be very unexpected to not find pdf.
